Local Independent takeover of Gatehouse Pharmacy

Gatehouse has a new independent pharmacy, taking over from Boots. Soenaid our new pharmasist says, "The local community have been so supportive and kind to the whole team. We are excited to create a local health hub for Gatehouse and the surrounding area. I have been a community pharmacist in the area for over 20 years and have now qualified as an Independent Prescriber.  This allows us to offer a wider range of treatments and we have a keen interest in creating more of a local health hub environment and a point of call for anyone needing advice with their medications or ailments. I  personally have a keen interest in diabetes and we aim to become a diabetes advice health hub. The original staff are all still here and we want to inform you all of some important points going forward. 

- Please allow 4 working days from ordering your repeat prescription to collection (standard timescale now pharmacies due to stock procurement).

- Urgent prescriptions will be quicker however and we will try our hardest to dispense these as quickly as we can.

- We will not be sending a text message when your medication is ready but please phone us with any medication queries or to ask the status of your prescription.  We aim to introduce this at some point when we can.

- We will be setting up a free delivery service within a 25 mile radius and please call to enquire if interested.  Call us on 01557 814210.
