Stay Well During Winter


It's important to look after yourself, especially during the winter months. Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health.

If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. Please seek advice from your pharmacist.

PSA Information


The PSA test is a blood test that measures the amount of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by normal cells in the prostate and also by prostate cancer cells. It is normal to have a small amount of PSA in your blood, and the amount rises as you get older and your prostate gets bigger. A raised PSA level may suggest you have a problem with your prostate, but not necessarily cancer.
