The Henfield Lloyd Pharmacy, in High Street, has opened its doors with a focus on delivering services for conditions such as chronic pain and asthma.

Pharmacy Manager Chris Horney said: “We’re delighted with our transformation. As people live for longer it’s important that we take a more active role in managing our health.

“Pharmacy already plays a vital role in medicines management and now, with our modern make-over, we are better equipped to offer more services and have a more inviting place for people to visit us for advice on staying healthy, as well as remedies for when feeling poorly.

“Many people find managing their medicines difficult but there are now a range of ways available to make the whole process easier.

“Not all patients know they can ask their GP to send prescriptions directly to us, speeding up the process and saving them time. For those on long-term medication, three months or more, we offer the NHS medicines check-up, which is a free consultation to help patients better understand the medicines they are taking, why they have been prescribed and how to take them more easily to get the most from them.”

Local residents can also benefit from the introduction of a pain management service to help those living with acute pain.

For customers needing extra support when performing everyday tasks, the store will also stock a number of products from its Betterlife from Lloyds Pharmacy range.

Mr Horney added: “As we grow older, we are continually on the search for innovative solutions to help ensure that we have a healthier independent life. The introduction of the Betterlife range offers our patients specialist products to help with their everyday needs.”

Patients can continue seeking advice of the pharmacist and can nominate their local Lloyds Pharmacy for the electronic prescription service.
