New Late Night Pharmacy Opens In Haslemere
DOCTORS and staff at Haslemere Health Centre have welcomed the opening of a new late night pharmacy that will improve healthcare for its 18,000 patients in Haslemere and the surrounding areas.

Work on the pharmacy began in December 2012 and involved redesigning part of the health centre in Haslemere rather than constructing a new building. The new pharmacy has now been completed and to the delight of staff and patients the pharmacy commenced trading today.  The new pharmacy enables patients to get their medication on-site rather than having to make a separate visit to the town centre.

The pharmacy is open when the surgery is open and provides extended hours into the evenings and over weekends.

Dr Mark Hurst, from the health centre, said: “We have been working on bringing a pharmacy into the health centre for over three years and are delighted to see the pharmacy open.  We know that health centre pharmacies are much preferred by patients and so we have reconfigured the building to incorporate the pharmacy. This development is very exciting.  It will have a big effect on the community, providing people with improved access to pharmacy services.”

The Late Night Pharmacy is open to everyone, not just to patients of the Health Centre, and a pharmacist will always be available to offer advice on medicines and minor ailments.

Blessing Adeyemi, Pharmacy Manager at Haslemere Pharmacy, said “The team and I are really excited about the opening of our new pharmacy, and we are looking forward to providing an excellent service to all.”

In addition to the usual prescription dispensing, other free services available at Haslemere Late Night Pharmacy include a FREE prescription collection and delivery service, treatment for minor illnesses, medicine reviews with a pharmacist to help patients get the most from their medicines, and many more. Anyone can call in to see the friendly pharmacy team to discuss any health or medication concerns and a warm welcome awaits.

Haslemere Late Night Pharmacy is open Monday to Saturday 7am to 10.30pm and on Sundays 10am to 5pm. The Pharmacy team can be contacted on 01428 656143 or email: info@haslemerepharmacy.co.uk.
