As you may be well aware of, the long wait is over and Buckley Pharmacy has now acquired the old Barclays Bank premises at 78, The Street. We are aiming to open on Wednesday 7th August.
The shop floor has been designed by a leading pharmacy shop fitter and work is due to start mid July. The premises itself is much larger than the Buckley Pharmacy on Barnett Wood Lane and therefore potentially will provide a variety of new services and product range whilst maintaining the same standard of quality of service that Buckley Pharmacy has provided in the past. All the staff recruitment has now been finalised.
New services offered by the pharmacy will include: Smoking Cessation Advice and Support, Lifestyle, Diet and Weight Management, Mobility Aids, Emergency Contraception, Travel Healthcare Advice, Diagnostic Equipments, Veterinary Products and Health Foods.
The pharmacy will also be offering a prescription delivery service for patients who are housebound.
There have been many interests around the use of the workshop room – what used to be the safe at Barclays, to provide novel services to further improve Public Health in line with the Department of Health agenda. We are hoping to get support from the Health and Well Being Board.
Thank you once again for all your support. Looking forward to see you all at our new Pharmacy.
