We dispense both N.H.S. private and veterinary prescriptions.
When we dispense your prescriptions, we keep a record of the items
dispensed. When you next bring a prescription here, our records
will quickly tell us whether you may safely take a medicine with
other medicines you may be taking.
We can also keep a record of any allergies you may have and check
whether there is likely to be any reaction.
Also our labeling system will automatically give you warnings about
alcohol, drowsiness, driving and so on.
