Flu Vaccination Service

The Flu Vaccination Service is the provision of a flu vaccine, administered by our specially trained Pharmacist, to help prevent you catching flu. The Flu Vaccination Service is suitable for most adults. If you are interested in receiving the service, our Pharmacist will take you through a short series of questions to ensure that it is suitable before giving the vaccination. Lifelong immunity to the influenza virus is virtually impossible to achieve and therefore an annual vaccination is required to provide protection from the disease.

Daily Living Aids

Some people who have problems with their mobility need daily living aids to help them with day to day activities. These aids can be prescribed by assessors who look at your needs and recommend products that may be of help to you. If you receive a prescription for a daily living aid we can dispense it for you and provide any information you need on how to use it.

Care Home Services

We provide a service tailored to the needs of each Care Home, by offering advice and support to the residents and staff of care homes, including delivery of medicines. We will advise on the proper and effective ordering of medicines and appliances as well as their safe storage, administration and proper record keeping. We provide a dispensing service to suit the needs of the Care Home, whether that is dispensing into standard containers or into Monitored Dosage Systems (MDS).

Passport Photo

Our Passport Photo Kiosk deliver identity photos that meet the International Civil Aviation Organisation standards (“ICAO”), and are therefore suitable for official documents including UK passport, driving licence and identity cards.

Repeat Prescription Service

If you regularly receive regular repeat prescriptions from your GP we can help you to make sure that you don’t ever run out of your medicines. We will order your repeat prescription on your behalf in time for us to dispense it before you run out of your medication. All you need to do is call into our pharmacy to collect your medicines when you need another supply.

Appliance Use Review Service

If you regularly use appliances such as incontinence or stoma products then our pharmacist can provide you with an Appliance Use Review, free of charge. During the review they will help you to improve your knowledge and use of your products, identify any poor or ineffective use and advise you about safe storage and disposal.

Medicines Use Review Service

A Medicines Use Review (MUR) aims to help you better understand the medicines you take, how they work and what they do. It is a free service, funded by the NHS, which involves having a private consultation of around 20 minutes, with our Pharmacist, focusing on how you use your medicines. The aim of the review is to help you better understand the medicines you take, how they work and what they do. It will also help the pharmacist to identify any problems you may be experiencing such as side effects or interactions with other medicines.

Minor Ailments Service

The Minor Aliments Service (MAS) is a scheme available in Scotland, which allows you to use your pharmacy to get advice and treatments for common illnesses such as coughs, colds, pains and hay fever free on the NHS. Our Pharmacist can provide you with advice on treating these common conditions and, if necessary, prescribe over the counter medicines free of charge. In addition, if our Pharmacist feels it is appropriate then they will refer you to a GP or another healthcare professional.

Supervised Administration

People undertaking drug treatment programmes may be required to take their medication whilst being supervised in the pharmacy. We offer a discreet and confidential service which helps to ensure your medication is taken as prescribed and to reduce the risk of medication being lost or stolen.

Mole Scanning Service

Our Mole Scanning Service allows the detection of malignant melanoma (a type of skin cancer). It is non-invasive, painless and quick to perform. The Service involves scanning your mole(s) using innovative imaging technology and having them analysed by a Dermatology Specialist. The service is for anyone who is worried about a mole(s) that they have on their body. It is operated by ScreenCancer UK with the assistance of trained members of our pharmacy team.
