I've had months on end of issues with this pharmacy, from losing prescriptions, never being able to get stock in, to one staff member saying they can help you and then another advises they can't, no regard for the mistakes of their colleagues and the position it puts you in. The attitude on their staff is atrocious. Total waste of time and an added stress that's not needed. Will no longer be using this pharmacy as its not fit for purpose.
