Ensuring Uninterrupted Medication Supply
While we strive to provide consistent service, it’s always a good idea to be proactive about your health. This means keeping track of your medication needs and refilling your prescriptions before they run out.
In Case of Emergency
If you are out of a vital medication and unable to get a refill due to our unexpected closure, seek immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider, visit the nearest hospital, or call 999 in case of a life-threatening situation.
