Prescription Service

We provide a full range of prescription services along with free medical advice in our private consultation booth. We can make blister packs for tablets, give advice on minor ailments and dispense repeat prescriptions that are available for collection upon arrival, without any waiting. We also supply a wide array of over-the-counter medicines that you can take without a prescription, and we run a smoking cessation program. There are a range of schemes available to help cover the cost of your medication, including the drug payment scheme, long-term illness scheme and the medical card. You can discuss your eligibility for these schemes with any of our staff.

High Quality Photo Prints

Turn your digital photos into high quality prints with our instant photo printing booth. You can make personalised photobooks, create calendars and print directly from your camera or from Facebook. For the non-digital photographer, we can develop photos from film and disposable camera. We also take photographs for passports, driving licences and I.D. cards.

Veterinary Pharmacy

We specialise in veterinary pharmacy, and have played a leading role in transforming pharmacy to meet the needs of our farming community. The expertise of a pharmacist, in treating ailments with medicine, is directly applicable to animals, because the same treatment principles apply. As such, your pharmacist is an expert in the treatment of animals using medicine. We stock a comprehensive selection of veterinary products, and have been supplying the local farming community for over 30 years.


Our staff are trained to offer tailored cosmetic advice, specialising in Vichy skincare and Rimmel makeup. We stock a full range of foundation, eye-shadow, lipstick, nail polish, make-up brushes and mascara. We also have a select range of fragrances, for both men and women. For the summer, we have sun-cream and sun-glasses for all ages. We also supply hair colouring, shampoos, conditioner, dental supplies, razors, shaving foam and many other items.


For people struggling to manage obesity, we offer the Lipotrim Obesity Management Programme, which is clinically proven to help those combatting serious obesity problems. Under the programme, you can use a low-calorie formula from the Lipotrim Maintenance range in conjunction with your normal 'healthy' low fat meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Lipotrim Maintenance products help make you feel satisfied faster, so you eat lighter meals. They also help reduce your cravings for unnecessary food so you are far less likely to 'snack' between meal times. In this way, they help you to control your weight. Note that this programme is only available following an assessment. For further information on the enrolment criteria please contact a member of staff.
