FRANK Randall PhC (Pharmacist) DFHom (Pharm), a pharmacist with the Murray Group of Pharmacies, on the services available at Murrays in Duke Street, Barrow
THE Murrays Duke Street Pharmacy was acquired by Murrays in the early 1960s and is also the Head Office for the Murrays Group.
Many Murrays customers will remember the cough mixture which used to be sold there, Fosters Red Extract of Bark.
Again, like all Murrays, the pharmacy has been fitted and altered a number of times over the years to the present high standard.
As well as the traditional NHS dispensing and advice on minor ailments, such as coughs and colds, Ruth Mckenna, the pharmacist manager, and her highly trained and experienced staff, offer many other services to patients.
The Murray’s Repeat Dispensing Service is offered to all patients.
All you do is take your order for repeat medication into the pharmacy and Mrs Mckenna and her staff will obtain your prescription for you from the Doctor’s Surgery. Your medication will be ready to collect a few days later.
Ask at the counter for details and an application form.
The NHS Medicine Use Review Service is available for any patient who wants a confidential chat about their medication and a private Consultation Room is available for this service.
The NHS Stop Smoking Service is also available, usually without an appointment, for help with giving up smoking.
As in a number of Murrays Pharmacies, a service for patients who have difficulty with their medication is available.
Medication is dispensed into weekly compliance trays to make it easier to take and remember.
Uniquely, this Murrays pharmacy is also a post office, with all the services a post office has to offer.
As well as stamps, motor road tax, passports, currency exchange etc, lots of stationery items are for sale to help you post anything you want, not only in this country, but all over the world.
Murrays Pharmacy Duke Street is convenient and accessible for all your pharmacy needs and a post office as well.
Ask your Murrays pharmacist, you’ll be taking good advice!
