Remember back in the good old days when you could pop down to your local pharmacy and get personalised, compassionate service? Back when your pharmacist was a trusted medical contact and knew each customer on a first-name basis? At The Local Choice, we want to revive this warm relationship between customer and pharmacist, and to provide our surrounding families (and communities at large) with affordable, quality medical care and services. If you are looking for a personal touch when it comes to your health and wellbeing, let us be there for you.
Professional Pharmaceutical Advice and Care
Most people would far prefer to visit their pharmacy before paying their doctor a visit – it is more affordable and doesn’t require an appointment. For this reason, pharmacists are, in many cases, the first point of medical contact patients make. In order to provide our communities with quality pharmaceutical advice and care, we ensure that our staff are all highly qualified and trained. They also share the same values in building trusting relationships with each customer. Passionate and knowledgeable, it is our aim is to provide you with only the best medical advice and support available.
