  • Ensure your children are using hand sanitiser frequently
  • Please ensure all litter is put in the bins provided

A message from Dean and Smedley

To protect our staff we are only allowing 3 patients in at a time

Please wait outside until a slot becomes available

Thank you

Before you wait to enter;

  • Allow enough time for prescriptions to be completed; 3-4 days rather than the 2-3 days due to unprecedented volumes and delays from wholesalers. Unless prescriptions are urgent there will be a delay, so please ring to check they are here to avoid disappointment.
  • Shop stock is running very low, so please ring to see if we have the items you require. We are struggling with paracetamol tablets & liquid, hand washes & sanitisers, disinfectants & thermometers.
  • Our preference is that all payments are on card to reduce money contact, so please try your best.
  • We ask others in the community to help us to cope with delivery demands due to self-isolation with prescription collections. We will however need a consent form to be completed each time.
  • Finally, we are working as hard as we can during exceptional circumstances so would appreciate you treat our staff with the courtesy and patience you would expect yourselves.

Thank you for your understanding and support

Will all customers to try to use card payments please. This the safest way to reduce transfer of the virus, not just at the chemist but at all retailers. Thank You.
