As we head full steam in to the winter months with both the threat of COVID-19 and the usual round of winter health challenges to contend with, accessing quick and convenient advice and medicines in your local community is vital, Aneta Babol, Lindsay & Gilmour pharmacy manager writes.
Lindsay & Gilmour pharmacies in Hawick and Selkirk offer a range of services which ensure access to your repeat prescriptions and treatment for minor illnesses without the need for a GP appointment.
This week we would like to remind you about our free online repeat prescription ordering service.
Q: How does the online prescription ordering service work?
You can now manage your prescriptions via your mobile by downloading our app (which can be found here https://lindsayandgilmour.co.uk/services/prescriptions/)
This makes it quick and easy to order and track repeat prescriptions at the touch of a button.
By using our FREE Repeat Prescription service, we can save you valuable time ordering your repeat prescriptions. We will pick up your prescription from your surgery and dispense it ready for collection when it suits you.
Prefer not to use our app? No problem! Speak to your local pharmacy team to sign up to our repeat prescription service.
And, just to remind you, that L & G pharmacy teams offer the NHS Scotland Pharmacy First service at its Hawick and Selkirk branches, allowing patients to access advice and appropriate treatment for minor illnesses and common health complaints without the need for a GP appointment. All of our pharmacies are now open 6 days a week.
Once a member of the healthcare team has noted your details and symptoms, they will be in a position to provide you with the help you need.
This service is available without an appointment and, in some cases in the evenings and weekends too. Please remember to ask us if you would prefer to use one of our consultation rooms to speak to a Pharmacist in private. Our pharmacies have been specially adapted for this purpose.
So, why not give us a call or pop into our Hawick or Selkirk branches soon?
If you or a family member are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms please access government advice online and call before you visit us instore.
