All medicines are dispensed in child-resistant containers unless you ask us not to. Please remember:

Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
Our pharmacist can advise you on the safe storage of medicines.

Unwanted Medicines

We also have a medication return service where we can arrange for unwanted medication to be collected from you and safely returned to us for disposal. Through our service, we would be able to collect your unwanted medication or arrange a pre-paid return envelope.

If you would like to arrange a collection, please call us on 0330 111 0440. Alternatively, you can return any unwanted medicines to any local pharmacy where they will dispose of them safely.

NHS Health Advice and Self-Care

The pharmacist and our trained assistants are available for advice on all medicines and minor ailments – contact us. We can also give you advice on how to live a healthy life, for example, advice on how to stop smoking or healthy diets.

We can direct you to other sources of advice and assistance if we cannot help you ourselves.

Signposting

We can direct you to providers of services that we do not provide at our pharmacy. See the website or contact us for details.

Promotion of Health Lifestyles

We can provide advice to how to make your lifestyle healthier and seek to identify ways that we can assist you to achieve healthier living. We also take part in Public Health Campaigns.

Patient Medication Records

Our computer allows us to keep records of all your prescriptions dispensed by us. This helps us check for possible problems, such as reactions between medicines and will help us deal with any queries you may have.

We comply with the Data Protection Act and the NHS code of practice on confidentiality. If you want to discuss the records we keep, please ask to speak to the pharmacist.

We provide these services on behalf of NHS England, PO Box 16738, Redditch, B97 9PT. Email: [email protected]
