"Revised Trossachs Pharmacy hours are currently 10am-1pm 2pm-5pm Monday to Friday - however these are subject to change.
Please allow a minimum of 72 hours before attempting to collect prescriptions.
Please refrain from calling the pharmacy to check if prescriptions are ready prior to the 72 hour waiting period as dealing with these basic enquiries is taking essential time away from our staff dispensing your medications.
If you have any symptoms or ailments and require advice, please contact the pharmacy by phone and you will be offered a phone consultation - we are trying to minimise face to face contact where possible.
Thanks for your continued support,
The Trossachs Team"
