COVID-19

The demand for pharmacy services has rapidly increased due to the on-going Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. However, we continue to serve our communities between Monday and Friday we are open 8:30am to 7:00pm and open Saturday between 9:00am to 1:00pm. 

We are still receiving, processing and delivering your normal prescriptions so please either call or email (rexall.chemist@nhs.net) to order you prescriptions.

We recommend the coronavirus page on the NHS website for more up to date information.

Coronavirus symptoms

  • high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – you are coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have symptoms stay at home. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital, instead use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111.

What can I do to protect myself against respiratory viral infections?

To look after your health, we recommend you follow these simple steps to protect yourself and those around you against respiratory viral infections:

Washing your hands – be sure to wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds throughout the day, especially after coughing, being on public transport or before/after handling food. For extra protection we recommend keeping hand sanitiser with you at all times as it’s easy-to-carry and cleanses without the need for rinsing.

Throw tissues in the bin – when coughing or sneezing, it’s always best to cover your mouth with a tissue to stop bacteria-carrying droplets from spreading to those around you. It’s important to throw your tissues in the bin with a lid after each use.

Avoid close contact with people who appear unwell – it’s always nice to offer help to a poorly friend or colleague but try to do it from a distance to avoid the spread of germs.
