Gale Farm Pharmacy reminds patients to plan ahead this Christmas!

(Posted on 10/12/15)

The team at Gale Farm 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 Hugh Lindsay, Pharmacy Manager at Gale Farm Pharmacy.

“Ordering your repeat prescriptions is simple.  Call us on 01904 784091 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 Hugh, “which is particularly helpful at this already frantic time!”

Gale Farm Pharmacy will be open on Christmas Eve between 8.30am and 6pm, Boxing Day between 8.30am and 12pm and on New Year’s Eve between 8.30am and 6pm.  The pharmacy will be closed on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and the 28th December.

For urgent help when your pharmacy or GP surgery is closed, phone NHS 111.
