Welcome to the Charing Pharmacy. Our Pharmacy is one of the first in the country to install automated robotic dispensing equipment to ensure accurate and fast provision of patient’s medication.
Charing Pharmacy which opened with the new building operates under the name of Charing Practice Limited and the directors and shareholders are Dr W H E Warrilow, Dr N D Poplett, Dr R Dunnet and Dr S Naganathar.
We have all the necessary services you would expect to find from a pharmacy. You can order your repeat prescriptions via this website and can come and collect them at your convenience or have them delivered to your door for a small charge. Please call us if you do require any assistance. We also stock a comprehensive range of toiletries, aromatherapy items and other chemists’ sundries and these can be ordered for home delivery along with your medication.
Our pharmacist Mr. Derek Meadows, who is an independent prescriber, is pleased to advise about all aspects of medication as well as providing a full range of non-prescription medicine. Most of our repeat prescribing is done through the computer. You will be issued with a printed slip listing the medicines that the doctor is happy for you to take without being seen again. If the slip is handed or posted to the surgery, the prescription will normally be ready for collection after two or three working days. However, the doctor will still wish to see you at intervals to monitor your progress and modify your treatment as necessary.
Please note that we do not take repeat prescription requests by telephone in order to avoid errors but they can be faxed to the Pharmacy on 01233 713329 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have range of services in the Pharmacy such as a Warfarin monitoring clinic, stop-smoking clinic, weight management clinic and NHS health checks.
Our pharmacists offer a Warfarin initiation, monitoring and dosing service.
Patients taking medications for a long-term condition can have a medicines use review service which involves a consultation with the pharmacist to discuss your medications. It gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about how and why you should be taking your medicines and any problems or side effects this is causing. This is different to a medication review you may have with your doctor.
