Description

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. Your pharmacist 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 are provided free of charge and do not generally require an appointment.

Note, our pharmacists at Life Pharmacy NorthWest are accredited to provide vaccinations against the Flu, Shingles, Meningococcal Disease and Whooping Cough. You may also wish to see them for women's health conditions including Urinary Tract Infections, Thrush or Emergency Contraception. Men don't need to see a doctor to qualify for treatment of Erectile Dysfunction if needing Viagra.

Please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions.
