COVID-19 Opening Hours
In response to the latest public health advice, changes to pharmacy opening hours have been introduced across Scotland to better support patients & frontline healthcare staff.
At present, Dears Pharmacy locations are facing unprecedented demand and are much busier than usual. We are incredibly grateful to our team who have shown great commitment and resilience through what is an incredibly unsettling time for us all.
As an organisation we are working tirelessly to support the communities in which our pharmacies are based and our team proudly live and work.
Please be assured that any changes in our service are taken to limit exposure and ultimately protect both our patients and our staff so we can continue to provide critical pharmacy services.
We would, therefore, like to advise patients that our pharmacies will now be open to the public at the following times on weekdays:
- 10am – 1pm
- 2pm – 5pm
We will be open as normal on Saturdays.
If your prescription is not urgent please consider downloading our APP to manage your repeats remotely and benefit from free delivery.
Manage your medicines from home using our NHS approved app
This service is available to everyone and under the current social distancing guidelines, provides the safest way to order and track your prescriptions as well as providing a chat function, where you can message your local pharmacy from home.
Please see our website for more information or download Healthera from the App Store or Google Play and search for ‘Dears Pharmacy’ to select your local pharmacy.
Don’t stockpile prescription drugs
We understand this is an anxious time and while we are reducing our patient-facing opening hours, please only order what you need and allow us more time to prepare your medicines safely.
We would like to thank you, so very much, for your patience and understanding during this period of great uncertainty for us all.
We remain dedicated to our unique role within Edinburgh and Fife and will continue our efforts to keep you safe and well.
