Wymeswold Pharmacy – more than the usual pharmacy

Serving the wolds villages since 1997, Wymeswold Pharmacy is an independent pharmacy owned and run by Roger & Marion Kirkbride. Roger first came to the pharmacy as a locum in 2007 and, believing that it had potential, bought it in 2010.

The pharmacy may be small but that doesn’t mean you get any less from it – in fact you get more. All pharmacies provide the same essential NHS services and most provide additional NHS services; many provide repeat prescription management too.

We do all that and more; where else can you get your prescriptions dispensed and have your feet done, get a massage, reflexology and CBT?

Over the counter medicines, vitamins, toiletries etc.

We keep a range of products in stock to treat most minor illnesses plus:-

  • First aid
  • Skincare
  • Incontinence
  • Vitamins & minerals
  • Toiletries

We don’t have much space so we can’t keep an extensive range; however we can get almost anything within 48 hours and many products on the same day. If we haven’t got what you want please ask & we’ll do our best to get it.

….. and we do cash back.

Repeat prescriptions

We offer a repeat prescription management service mainly for patients registered at Barrow on Soar and East Leake surgeries. However Electronic Prescriptions makes this service also possible for most patients who use any surgery – please talk to us if you would like to use the service but you use a different surgery

We will deliver request in to the surgery, collect the prescription, dispense the prescription and have it ready for you to collect from the pharmacy in three working days (often less) from the request being made.

How it works

 

If you find it difficult to get to the pharmacy we will deliver the prescription to your door

 

How to get started

 

  • Call the pharmacy to talk about when you want to start and how you want to order and obtain your prescriptions
  • If you want us to collect your repeat prescriptions you will be asked to sign a consent form; we will organise this
  • We will get repeat slips from your doctor
  • When you need more medicines just call.

 

If you go to the Dr and (s)he gives you a prescription that you need straight away you don’t have to come here for it; if you need it straight away go to the nearest pharmacy. However if you need that medicine again we will need to know what it is and how you take it.

In 2011 we had the pharmacy extended to add on a consulting and treatment room. This enabled us to bring you some extra services provided by a range of visiting practitioners who are skilled in their professions, including:-
