Online pharmacies

You may have been tempted by the ‘convenience’ of an NHS authorised online pharmacy for the supply of your prescription drugs. This works well until something goes wrong. A remote organisation is not like your local pharmacist and local doctor. With them on your doorstep, you can usually sort things out quickly.

We would urge you to continue using local services. Apart from genuine convenience under all circumstances, supporting local businesses benefits our whole community.

Before deciding to take the online option, make sure Google the name of any company offering you services for news stories. We’ve seen stories about non-deliveries and selling-on of private details.

Your choice. Of course.
