Arlington Road Pharmacy reminds patients to plan ahead this Christmas!

(Posted on 14/12/15)

The team at Arlington Road Pharmacy are encouraging the local community to be prepared and order their repeat prescriptions in good time to avoid any last minute panic over the Christmas break.  

“Christmas is a hectic time of the year, and it’s easy to overlook the need to order and collect your repeat prescriptions.  This can potentially be very serious for some patients,” said Fiona Dang, Pharmacy Manager at Arlington Road Pharmacy.

“Ordering your repeat prescriptions is simple.  Our dedicated prescription line is 01323 731058 or you can pop into the pharmacy and speak to a member of our team.”

“We offer a free prescription collection and delivery service to make life easier for people to manage their medicines,” said Fiona, “which is particularly helpful at this already frantic time!”

Arlington Road Pharmacy will be open on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve between 7am and 10.30pm and will be closed on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and the 28th December.

For more information on the opening hours of your local pharmacy check out the NHS Choices website and for urgent help when your pharmacy or GP surgery is closed, phone NHS 111.
