Judith Hoyle

Haxby Pharmacy Customer

I want to say how impressed I’ve been today with the service I’ve had at Haxby Pharmacy. I called in this morning for advice as I’ve just become unwell and I’m leaving first thing tomorrow on a trip to Lebanon. The pharmacist helped me to arrange an appointment with the local GP, as she suspected I needed antibiotics. I was able to pick up a prescription at the same pharmacy by no later than 3pm that day. Everyone I dealt with was pleasant and helpful and a credit to the pharmacy.

Jenny & Jim Lambert

Poppleton Pharmacy Customer

My husband had a large blister on his knee after a carpet burn. The pharmacist not only gave us reassuring advice, but told us how to treat it with the dressings she gave us by doing the first one for us. A week later, at another visit, she told us and showed us how to carry on with the care, saying how well it was doing. Care and advice like this would be almost impossible to obtain at the moment. We are very lucky to have such a friendly, expert pharmacist, willing to help so readily in our village. All the staff are helpful and friendly too.


Huntington Pharmacy Customer

I cannot thank Huntington Pharmacy enough for their excellent service. They managed to source some emergency supplies of tablets for my mum, which have been discontinued for the next three months. Without these tablets, my parents wouldn’t have been able to travel on their holiday and my mum would have been very poorly. The member of staff who was helping us managed to rectify this, overnight, which is just amazing. He went above and beyond to sort this out and we are so grateful, we cannot thank him enough.

Susan Richardson

Tower Court Pharmacy Customer

Wow, how kind, caring and helpful are the pharmacist and the staff? The care and help I have been given with dealing with my medication has been outstanding. Sometimes in life you are extremely lucky - I am that person. I couldn't wish for better help and support from you all. Thank you so very much.

John Fletcher

Water End Pharmacy Customer

I've been going to this chemist for twenty years and the staff are fantastic - polite, helpful and happy to help you with whatever you need. I highly recommend this chemist.

Rob Pickersgill

Bishopthorpe Road Pharmacy Customer

Excellent help when I needed an emergency supply of medication. Visiting York for the weekend and left my pills at home in Cheshire! Josh and the staff got on the phone to my GP and had me a supply in 15 minutes. I can't thank them enough!
