South Kirkby Pharmacy reminds patients to plan ahead this Christmas!

(Posted on 14/12/15)


The team at South Kirkby 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 Navinder Dhesi, Pharmacy Manager at South Kirkby Pharmacy.

“Ordering your repeat prescriptions is simple.  Call us on 01977 649283 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 Navinder, “which is particularly helpful at this already frantic time!”

South Kirkby Pharmacy will be open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve between 8.30am and 6.30pm and will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing 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 www.nhs.uk and for urgent help when your pharmacy or GP surgery is closed, phone NHS 111.
