Pharmacy Service


8:30 AM to 6:00 PM.


Welcome to Cromwell Pharmacy.  We have been looking after locals and visitors to Cromwell since 1874.  We are very proud of our heritage.

At Cromwell Pharmacy, our pharmacists can help to support the health of your family; they can provide advice and treatment for common minor illnesses for all ages.

Pharmacists ensure that prescriptions are dispensed correctly and that the medicine and dose is appropriate for you, so that you receive the maximum benefits from your medicines. We will help you understand what your medicines are prescribed for, how to take them, possible side effects and how to store them.

All advice and treatment is conducted in a professional and confidential manner and most services do not generally require an appointment.

For safe disposal, please return any expired or unwanted medicines, or needles/lancets and syringes to your pharmacy. There is no charge for this service.
