Bradley Stoke Pharmacy, Brook Way, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

[Advertising Feature] Bradley Stoke Pharmacy, located on Brook Way, alongside Bradley Stoke Surgery, is to reduce its opening hours from Wednesday 6th May 2015, when it merges with the nearby Ferndene Pharmacy (formerly Jhoots Pharmacy and, before that, Lloyds Pharmacy).

Ferndene Pharmacy will cease trading after the close of business on Tuesday 5th May 2015.

The changes come seven months after Bradley Stoke Pharmacy bought Ferndene Pharmacy from Jhoots, with a view to merging the two businesses, subject to approval from NHS England, which has now been granted.

New opening hours from Wednesday 6th May 2015

  • Monday to Thursday: 8.30am to 7.30pm
  • Friday: 8.30am to 6.30pm
  • Saturday: 9am to 12noon
  • Sunday: Closed

Richard Slade, joint owner of Bradley Stoke Pharmacy, said:

“Ferndene Pharmacy has lost a significant amount of business to Bradley Stoke Pharmacy. The amount of work and the number of customers at Ferndene Pharmacy have dropped significantly, which made it financially unviable. The best option was to merge both the branches and provide all possible services from one pharmacy.”

New pharmacy opens at Bradley Stoke Surgery

The new Bradley Stoke Pharmacy in Brook Way

Bradley Stoke now has a second late-night, seven-days-a-week, chemist after the ‘Bradley Stoke Pharmacy’ opened last Monday on the Bradley Stoke Surgery site in Brook Way.

The new chemist, which is located remarkably close to the existing Lloyds pharmacy near Aldi, opens for 100 hours a week, enabling it to exploit a “loophole” in the law that avoids it needing to prove to the local health authority that it is “necessary and expedient”.

The news, announced in a low-key manner on the Bradley Stoke Surgery website, comes just seven months after Boots opened its ‘Midnight Pharmacy’, operating under the same 100-hour legislation, at its Willow Brook Centre store.

The town’s fourth pharmacy operates within the Tesco Extra store, also at the Willow Brook Centre.

A statement in the September edition of the Friends of Bradley Stoke Surgery newsletter reads:

“Work began at the end of August to create Bradley Stoke Pharmacy adjacent to the surgery which will enable patients to make one journey to see the doctor and collect their prescriptions at the same time.”

“We are delighted that this new initiative is going ahead which will provide even better services and be more convenient for patients.”
