Emergency Hormonal Contraception

This is a private service. Please be aware that this service may not be available depending on
the pharmacist on duty.

Emergency hormonal contraception often known as “the morning after pill” and is available from us.

All customers wanting to get the tablet will be required to talk to the pharmacist in our private
consultation room.
This is completely confidential and your pharmacist is a medical professional bound by the laws of confidentiality as your doctor is.

There is no need to ask at the counter for the pill, simply ask to speak to the pharmacist in private.
