If you need URGENT medical attention call

Pharmacy2U


It has come to our attention that many local residents have received a promotional letter from a company called Pharmacy2U. Please be aware that this is a marketing tactic from an on line pharmacy company based in Leeds and if you sign up (or 'nominate') them to be your pharmacy by returning the form with the letter, they will send your repeat medication via the Royal Mail. If you have received a letter from Pharmacy2U and are happy with your current nominated pharmacy and how you receive your medication, please ignore it.

Seasonal Flu Clinics

The seasonal flu vaccination clinics are available between October and March.  Please book an appointment if you are eligible for this.
