A NEW pharmacy based in a doctors' surgery is set to offer extended hours to residents in Darlington.
The new late night pharmacy at Denmark Street Surgery on Denmark Street, Darlington, is a joint venture between the GPs at Denmark Street Surgery and Community Pharmacies (UK) Ltd and will open seven days a week.
The pharmacy has been developed within the Denmark Street Surgery, creating ten new jobs, to provide a healthcare resource to the local community.
In addition to the usual NHS and private prescription dispensing, there is a free prescription collection and delivery service, emergency contraception, and treatment for minor illnesses on offer.
Richard Binns, pharmacy manager at Denmark Street Pharmacy, said: “The team and I are really excited about the opening of our new pharmacy, and we are looking forward to providing a first class service to all.”
The late night pharmacy will officially be opened on Monday, March 18.
