By now many may have heard the sad news that Lloyds Pharmacy next door to Temple House Practice at Keynsham Health Centre is set to close with the pharmacy ceasing trading on 31st October 2020. Lloyds parent company has decided the branch is no longer financially viable which unfortunately leaves many local patients wondering where they will obtain their repeat medication from going forward and whether other pharmacies are facing closure.
We have already received a lot of enquiries from new and existing patients so we would like to reassure all of our customers that Chandag Road Pharmacy is in no way connected to Lloyds and is a separate independent business. As such we are NOT affected by the news other than the fact we will undoubtedly get busier as a result.
We already offer a completely FREE delivery service for repeat prescriptions to anyone in Keynsham, including residents near Keynsham Health centre and we have plenty of capacity to take on more patients if needed.
Despite being busier than ever during the pandemic, many pharmacies are currently struggling financially due to a combination of NHS funding cuts, rising costs and increasing use of online pharmacies. By choosing to give Chandag Road Pharmacy a try instead of online pharmacies you will be supporting local jobs by helping our small business remain strong and financially viable in the long term.
It is easy to change which pharmacy your prescription is sent to electronically. Simply select Chandag Road Pharmacy the next time you use your GP practices online prescription ordering system.
