Services

Our aim is to simplify your prescription ordering and collection. We can order, collect and deliver your prescription straight to your door. We collect prescriptions every day from all Ayr, Prestwick and Maybole surgeries as well as offering a free delivery service Monday-Friday.

NHS prescriptions

Dispensing NHS prescriptions is at the heart of our pharmacy business and we strive to provide a quick and reliable prescription turnaround.

We hold a vast range of prescription medicines in stock, however, if we do not have your item in stock we have a highly efficient supply chain where we can source the majority of products same or next day.

Prescription collection and delivery service

Please see our dedicated page for prescription collection and local home delivery.

Community Compliance Aids

Are you or a family member struggling to remember to take all your medication at the correct times? A compliance aid could help. We can fill a weekly compliance aid and deliver to you free of charge and will even take responsibility for the reordering of the medication.

Contact us to discuss your needs and let us organise this service with your GP.

Unwanted/Unused medicine

We have monthly collections from Ayrshire and Arran healthboard of unwanted and unused medicines which are disposed of safely.

Pharmacy First (Urinary tract infections and impetigo)

Our pharmacist can now give advice and/or treatment for uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women aged between 16 and 65 and impetigo in age 2 years and up as part of this exciting new initiative.

Chronic Medication Service

We can register you for this new service if you have a long-term condition. If you have a regular repeat prescription, your doctor can do a prescription for 24 or 48 weeks that we keep in the pharmacy, meaning you don't have to re-order your prescription each month from the doctor's surgery. We will let you know when each instalment is ready for collection/delivery and are able to discuss any concerns or queries you may have with your medication. There are currently two surgeries in Ayr able to do serial prescriptions with more due to sign up soon. Please ask a member of staff for more details or enquire here.

Emergency Hormonal Contraception

We provide a quick and confidential service within our consultation room for ultimate privacy. The "morning after pill" must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex but is most effective the sooner it is taken. It is available free of charge to females aged 13 or over. No appointment necessary, drop-in welcome.

Emergency Supplies

At Alloway Pharmacy, we are keen to keep patients stable on their medication. Our pharmacist can supply you with your medication under certain circumstances if you have run out or your prescription has not made it from the surgery in time. It is very rare we will not be able to help you out so please call in to see us and our pharmacist can discuss how to help you.

Antimalarials

We can provide antimalarial medication without you needing to visit your doctor to get a private prescription. You will need to complete a medical questionnaire in the pharmacy. This will be assessed by our pharmacist who will determine which treatment (if any) is suitable. Treatment will require payment as this service is not funded by the NHS.

Free Blood Pressure and Diabetes check

Free of charge service, drop-in welcome. We recommend a 12 hour fasting period before a diabetes check, please ask in store for more details or enquire here.
