HALF DAY CLOSURE


Tuesday 14th November 2017


If you need URGENT medical attention call


The GP Out of Hours Service NHS 111


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.
