There are some products that you just don’t want to have to select in a busy shop, or even worse: have to ask someone to buy for you because you can’t get to the shops. Eeek.
Fortunately, there are many options available.
- We have a private consultation room in the pharmacy. It is used for all sorts of things: Passport photos, registering patients for serial prescriptions, smoking cessation, and quite often just because we can sit down and have a quiet chat away from the hubbub of the counter. There is no drama about “Going into the Private Room”! So… ask to have a word in private, we’ll go through to the consultation room, have a chat, we often have samples, packs we can open, we can Google things, and when we have worked out what you need we will pop it in a bag with the barcode at the top, discretely scan it at the till, sorted!
- Discuss what you need over the phone. Give us a ring on 01340 871 279, say you want to discuss what you need privately so you can just pop in and pick it up / get someone else to collect it and we’ll have it ready in a bag behind the counter. Easy. There might be a 5p bag charge involved, but I think it is worth it.
- Browse the pharmacy website, choose what you need, then either arrange for it to be delivered or choose “collect in the pharmacy”. If you can’t see what you want, phone / email us and we’ll add it to the website, it just takes a few minutes.
