Healthcare services available

We have recently reduced our prescription prices and these lower prices will lead to significant savings for patients when having their prescription dispensed. We also have a great range of healthcare services.

Private Consultation Rooms

We understand the importance of patient confidentiality and all of our staff are trained to the highest standards. Each of our pharmacies has a dedicated consultation room where you can speak with your local pharmacist in private about any issue related to your health and well being. If you are unsure about the medicines that you are taking then your pharmacist can talk through the medicines with you and ensure you understand how and when to take your medicines and how to recognise any side effects.

Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception, or the morning after pill as it’s sometimes referred to, is available from your Sam McCauley pharmacist, without prescription and any requests for this are handled sensitively and discretely in the privacy of our consultation room. All of our pharmacists are trained to answer any questions or worries you may have and also offer advice on your sexual health and the many forms of contraception available to you. If the pharmacist feels the service is not suitable for you, or that you need more advice on contraception or sexual health issues, he or she may advise you to see your doctor or visit your local family planning clinic.

Stopping smoking

No matter how long or how much you have been smoking it is never too late to stop. Our pharmacists and staff are here to help by offering free smoking cessation advice. Simply ask our fully trained healthcare staff and they will then explain all the smoking cessation therapies available to you and tailor a smoking cessation plan for you and your needs.

Travel Advice

We can help you prepare a travel kit of essentials including painkillers, antiseptic, insect repellent and anti-diarrhoea tablets, and advice on protection against the sun. Your local pharmacist can also check whether or not it is recommended that you take any malaria prevention medication or require any travel vaccines from your GP.

Flu Vaccines*

We are still a number of months away from the flu season – thankfully – however it is worth bearing in mind that your local Sam McCauley pharmacist can offer this service in the privacy of our consultation room. Finally we have listed only some of the services available in our stores and look forward to speaking to you with regard to any aspect of your health.
