Chemist Longton, Pharmacy, Longton

The smart consultation rooms at this new-look Longton pharmacy can seriously improve your health. If you make Facer’s Pharmacy your first port of call for health concerns, especially minor ailments, Ian Facer and his colleagues can save you a long wait to see the doctor by giving professional advice and help. Potentially serious problems are referred to GPs, who are more likely to see you promptly after a pharmacy visit.    “We want people to realise pharmacists are highly trained and can give advice, subject to the same confidentiality rules as other health care professionals,” says Ian. “Our two new consultation rooms give us space to deliver these kinds of services.” Patients are regularly  referred on to GPs, some with symptoms which prove serious. The Government is encouraging such visits to pharmacies, easing the burden on GPs and accident and emergency departments – 20 per cent of GP visits could be avoided by using your local pharmacist. Facer’s extensive re-structure enables the pharmacy to offer a variety of services (see below). “We are trying to do new things and be as innovative as possible,” adds Ian, 51, a pharmacist for 29 years.    Instead of visiting your GP for blood pressure or diabetes checks, have them at the Longton pharmacy. Unsure about new medication you’ve started? Ask the pharmacist. NHS services include emergency contraception, chlamydia screening and help with weight management,  alcohol and smoking cessation. Private services include flu and meningitis jabs (free for all who qualify), cholesterol checks, allergy screening, healthy heart checks and a confidential erectile dysfunction service. Longton Pharmacy, bought by Alan Facer in 1973, is run by son Ian and his wife, Lesley, with 13 staff. They also collect prescriptions and offer home delivery.

Open Mon-Fri 8.45am-6.30pm, Sat, 9-5.30pm
