Pharmacy Services

Dispensing

We dispense medication an all of the following community drug schemes:

  • Private
  • GMS (Medical Card)
  • DPS (Drugs Payment Scheme)
  • LTI (Long Term Illness)
  • HAA (Health Amendment Act)
  • European Health Insurance Card (E111)
  • Community Hardship Scheme
  • High Tech Scheme (Consultant prescribed medicines)

Whether you are a regular customer, or it is your first visit to our pharmacies, we provide a comprehensive patient counselling service to ensure that you have all relevant information relating to your prescription medication and associated medical conditions.

We have a private consultation area in each pharmacy where you can speak in confidence to the pharmacist and discuss any queries or concerns you have in relation to your prescription or general health.

Medication Usage Reviews

We also provide a medication usage review to patients. This service is available free of charge, and is particularly suitable when a person is on a lot of medications and may be unclear about what each one is for, and when to take them. Contact any of our pharmacists to arrange an appointment.

Monitored Dosage Dispensing

This is a medicine packing system where your regular medicines are packed in a monthly or weekly tray to ensure you receive the right drug at the right time of day. Ask any of our pharmacists for details on how this system can help you safely manage your medication.

Compression Hosiery

A measuring service for compression hosiery is available in store. The measurement process is very important so that you get the correct fit when using compression stockings, for conditions ranging from tired and aching legs, varicose veins, chronic venous disease and lymphoedema (where fluid collects in the lower legs).

There are a wide range of compression, styles and colours to choose from for men and women, including maternity support and compression tights. This fitting service is available free of charge both to customers buying compression hosiery over the counter and to those that were prescribed it by their GP.

Retail

We carry a full range of over-the-counter medicines, and our staff have all received training in correct use of medicines. The key element of this training is to know when to bring a particular request to the attention of the pharmacist, so that you receive the appropriate medicines and advice.

An extensive range of vitamins and health supplements are stocked, as well as first aid supplies, supports and foot care products.

Beauty

We are fortunate to have qualified beauty therapists in charge of our Beauty departments in both of our stores. Annette and Eimear are available to guide you through our range, and give expert advice on which products might be most suitable for your needs.

A great range of products is available in each pharmacy, and we always have special offers and promotions running.

Why not join our Loyalty Club or sign up for out text messaging service so that you will always be informed of our promotion offers.
