YOUR SAFE AND TRUSTED LOCAL PHARMACY
West Hoe Pharmacy
West Hoe Pharmacy is an independently owned pharmacy, part of a small group of three, all based in Devon.
We are passionate about our customers and aim to provide a professional, reliable and efficient service. Our staff are friendly and excel in customer care. Your health is our priority.
FREE Prescription Collection & Delivery Service
We offer a FREE prescription collection service from all of our local GP’s. All of your medication can then be delivered to your doorstep FREE OF CHARGE. This service is available to any customer that requires it.
FREE Patient Compliance Packs (Monitored Dosage Systems)
We offer FREE patient compliance packs to any patient that may have issues in taking their medication. This can be due to a number of reasons including:
- patients who may struggle to organise their medicines and finds it difficult to remember to take them at the correct time
- patients who take a large number of medicines every day
- patients who have a carer that helps with the administration of medication
FREE Disposal of Unwanted Medicines
The best way to return any unwanted or out of date medicines is to your local pharmacy. We can dispose of both prescribed and over the counter medicines safely. Please try and return any unwanted or out of date medicines in their original packaging if possible, and always tell us if there are any controlled medication within your returns. We do not accept the returns of any sharps. i.e needles.
FREE Blood Pressure Testing
High blood pressure can lead to strokes and cardio-vascular problems. We offer a FREE blood pressure check. Our trained staff can take your blood pressure and discuss the results with you, making suggestions to manage your high blood pressure and referring you to a GP if necessary.
New Medicine Service
When you are prescribed a medicine to treat certain long term conditions, our pharmacist will support you to take the medicine properly so it works to its best effect. Our pharmacist will talk to you approximately one to two weeks after you first receive the medicine normally by telephone (but you can come into the pharmacy if that is easier) and then again in another two weeks to see how you are getting on and if you are experiencing any issues that we can help you with.
Emergency Hormonal Contraception
Emergency Hormonal Contraception is commonly called the ‘morning after pill’. If you have unprotected sex, or if you have forgotten to take your usual contraception or the condom splits, our pharmacist will be able to offer confidential advice and can sell you the morning after pill as long as you are within 72 hours of having unprotected sex and are suitable to take it.
Our pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals and can supply certain medicines for a limited number of common minor ailments on the NHS without you having to make an appointment to see your GP. This is a free NHS service that doesn’t require you making an appointment.
Substance Misuse Service
This service is available to any client that is receiving treatment for the management of opiate dependency. Only clients that are undertaking the substance misuse service will be eligible and it allows them to visit our pharmacy on a regular basis and be supervised whilst taking their medication to control substance misuse on our premises.
This service is discrete and confidential and designed to prevent people sharing or re-using needles. You may obtain packs of needles and/or syringes and return any used sharps to the pharmacy where we will dispose of them safely.
