Kings Road Pharmacy opens for business in Harrogate
(Posted on 05/03/12)
The Kings Road Pharmacy was officially opened today for its first day of trading.
The New Kings Road Pharmacy is situated at the Medical Centre of Dr Moss and Partners, 28-30 Kings Road, Harrogate HG1 5JP.
The new pharmacy is a collaboration between Dr Moss & Partners and Community Pharmacies (UK) Ltd, a provider of Joint Venture Health Centre based pharmacies.
Manned by dedicated and experienced staff, the pharmacy offers a full range of pharmacy services conveniently located in the health centre on Kings Road and you do not have to be a patient with the Surgery - anyone can use the pharmacy, no matter where you are registered.
Pharmacy Manager, Nick Goldstein explained: “We will be offering a full range of NHS services, open to all members of the public and not just the patients of Dr Moss & Partners.
“The team and I are ready to welcome everyone. We also offer a free prescription collection and delivery service.”
So if you require your prescription to be collected from your surgery then Kings Road Pharmacy staff can do this and get it ready for you to collect at a convenient time or alternatively it can be delivered to your home.
And again you do not have to be a patient of the surgery to qualify for the service. If you are a patient with another surgery and live within a five-mile radius of Harrogate, you will also be eligible for the free collection and delivery service as well.
In addition the pharmacy will offer patients a medicine use and new medicine review. So if you have any questions about a medicine you have been taking or if you are suffering from any side effects, Kings Road Pharmacy staff are there to help.
Nick added: “We are an independent community pharmacy and we strive to deliver a patient-focused service. Our staff are friendly and very helpful. We will go out of our way to help anybody we can.
“But you do not have to have a prescription to get some advice. If you have a concern, you can come in and get free advice at any time.
“If the pharmacist cannot answer a particular question, then the pharmacist will be able to signpost you to another provider, such as a doctor or a health charity that may be able to help.”
Kings Road Pharmacy is open from 8.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.
