Pharmacy Surgery at Barnton Pharmacy 

New Pharmacy Service - Available Monday, Tuesday & Friday - 9.00am - 12.00pm
Tel: 0131 339 3449.  Please always telephone the pharmacy prior to attending to ensure a prescribing pharmacist is available.

The aim of the Pharmacy Surgery is to allow adult patients access to treatment for various common clinical conditions such as ear ache, a sore throat and chest infections from a community pharmacy.

This exciting new service allows patients from Cramond Surgery to go straight to Barnton pharmacy for assessment and treatment by a highly skilled pharmacist.

At the pharmacy, you will be assessed and examined if needed by one of the pharmacists who has had extra training on common clinical conditions and can also write prescriptions.

You do not need an appointment. If the pharmacist is already seeing someone, you may have to wait.
