  • Repeat Prescriptions

    WellCare Pharmacy offers a FREE PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION AND DELIVERY SERVICE.
    All you need to do is come in to our pharmacy and give us your permission to collect your prescription on your behalf.

    Make life easier for yourself and let us order your prescription on your behalf. Simply let us know what repeat medicines you need, a few days before they run out, either in person, by phone, fax or email and we will arrange to collect it from your Doctor’s surgery. When we have collected your prescription it will be dispensed and waiting for you to collect from our pharmacy. We can also deliver your prescription medicines to your home for free if you live within the local area; you may come to our pharmacy for more details and speak to a member of staff or call us on 020 7263 3152.

    Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP)
    The way the NHS provides prescriptions to patients will be changing soon. In the near future, patients will have their prescription created and sent electronically directly from their GP to their ‘nominated’ pharmacy where they wish to receive their medication or appliance from.
    There will be a transition period where both paper and electronic versions will be created simultaneously so that the systems that handle the ETP versions have time to settle in and become the single standard means of issue.
    We are asking our regular customers to sign a Nomination Form that will allow us to obtain your electronic prescription from your surgery when the NHS Electronic Prescription Service comes into effect.
    You will normally be asked to nominate just one pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to and dispensed rather than a variety of pharmacies.
    WellCare Pharmacy is already equipped with computers and systems that are capable of handling electronic prescriptions.NHS Electronic Prescription ServiceWhen visiting a pharmacy or your surgery keep an eye out for the symbol shown in the image on the right, which identifies where the NHS Electronic Prescription Service is being used.

  • Comments, Suggestions & Complaints

    At WellCare Pharmacy we welcome your comments and suggestions.
    We aim to give you the highest standards of customer care and service. Should you have any complaints about our services or products please speak to our pharmacist. We operate a formal complaints procedure which is part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints.
    You can also get advice from the local Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). PALS is not part of the complaints procedure itself, but they might be able to resolve your concerns informally or can tell you more about the complaints procedure and independent complaint advocacy services.
    Please visit the NHS Website for more information about how to make a complaint on an NHS Service received from us or from any other NHS organization.

  • Confidential Help & Advice

    At WellCare Pharmacy we have a private Consultation Room available for your use.

We label your medicines to remind you about precautions such us avoiding alcohol and not driving if you feel drowsy.

    The pharmacist on duty and our trained assistants are available for advice on all medicines and minor ailments as well as on appropriate use of non-prescription medicines, in private if required, within the privacy of our consultation room.

  • Medicines Use Review (MURs) or Medi-Check

    WellCare Pharmacy is pleased to offer patients a free Medicines Use Review (MURs) or Medi-Check.
    This “Medicine Check” involves a confidential discussion about your medicines with the pharmacist and aims to help you get the most out of your medicines.
    During the consultation you will have the opportunity to find out more about your medication and discuss any issues or problems.
    This service is conducted in our private consultation room.
    Please note that this review differs from the one done by the GP; the GP will assess and change medicines whereas the pharmacist will discuss the best way of taking them.
    Please contact us for more information about this free NHS service – please ask for the pharmacist on duty.
