Crewkerne Pharmacy reminds patients to plan ahead this Christmas!

(Posted on 14/12/15)

The team at Crewkerne 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 Andy McKee, Pharmacy Manager at Crewkerne Pharmacy.

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

Crewkerne Pharmacy will be open on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Year’ Eve between 7am and 10.30pm and closed on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and 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.
