Reduced Opening Hours

Reduced opening hours have now been introduced in pharmacies across Scotland, as an interim measure.

Many pharmacies will be open 10am -1pm then 2pm-5pm.

This will help our teams to cope with the currently increased workload and unprecedented demand for our services.

We are also taking a number of steps to protect you, our staff and our vulnerable customers. These include hygiene measures, social distancing and door policies, adapted to the layout of the individual branch.

Our fantastic teams are working really hard to get your prescriptions dispensed, but we are experiencing some delays due to the sudden increase in the number of prescriptions we are receiving. Please reorder your prescription in plenty of time, and allow us and your GP practice some extra time to process them, but order only what you need. You can register for our text messaging service so that our team can let you know when your prescription is ready to collect. You can do this on our website in our Patient Services section.

We know these are anxious times, but we are doing everything we can to keep you and your loved ones safe and well.

COVID-19 Guidance

If you, or a member of your household have :-

  • A new, continuous dry cough


  • A fever (temperature more than 37.8’C

then you may have the COVID-19 virus.

The person with the symptoms MUST self-isolate for 7 days if they live alone.

If they live with others, then all other household members must self-isolate for 14 days. This is because the virus takes some time to cause symptoms, so if you have caught it from the person with symptoms, you will be infectious to others for longer.

If one of the other household members then develops symptoms during the 14 day period, they must stay at home for 7 days from the day they themselves develop symptoms, even if that takes them beyond the initial 14 day isolation.

You can spread the infection in the days BEFORE you have symptoms

For  the latest and up to date information please see the NHS Inform website on or at Health Protection Scotland

Guidance and information is being constantly updated as the virus spreads.

We wish you and your loved ones all the best in these challenging times.
