NOW RECRUITING:  We have a Receptionist position available, 30 hours per week. Click here to find out more.

PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS:  Please note that it takes 2 working days to order repeat medication due to the number of requests we receive. We cannot take orders over the telephone for safety. The easiest way for you to order your medication is online or by asking your pharmacist to do it for you.

TROUBLE GETTING THROUGH ON THE PHONE?  We have recruited more receptionists, but even so our peak time of day is 8.30 - 11.30am. If you don't want want to spend as long waiting, please avoid this time for routine matters.

Content Supplied by NHS Choices There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
