Your one stop shop for all your mobility and home care needs

Routine prescriptions

We dispense prescriptions to both NHS and private patients. Our computer system not only produces labels for medicines being dispensed, but also keeps a record of such items. It can also record details of any advice given to patients about their healthcare and lifestyle. The pharmacist can give you information about your medication and how to use it safely.

Smoking Cessation Service

In conjunction with Croydon NHS, we offer a one-to-one smoking cessation programme designed to help you STOP! You must agree to commit yourself to attend weekly at the pharmacy over a four week period.

Weekly Blister Packs

If either yourself or someone you care for has problems remembering how or when to take prescribed medication, we may be able to help with a compliance device. This is usually a cassette or card filled with one week's supply of medicine, split into different times of the day for each day of the week. Please note, however, that such a device might not be suitable for all patients and potential candidates will need to be assessed before such an aid can be offered. You should also mention this to your G.P. Please ask your pharmacist for details.

Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC)

This is commonly known as the 'morning after pill'. It is effective for up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse though we would stress that it is best used as soon as possible. We can provide EHC at the pharmacy during opening hours; no appointment is necessary.

Unwanted Medications

We are happy for you to return all your unwanted and unused medications to us for safe disposal.

Over The Counter Service

We stock a large range of products suitable for self-treatment of most common ailments as well as most types of vitamin and mineral products.

Medication Usage Review

If you take regular medication and are worried about possible side-effects, drug interactions or if you just need to know whether you are taking your pills correctly, then ask our pharmacist for a personalised medicines usage review. The review will be conducted in our private consultation room and will be completely confidential.
