There has been a pharmacy present at our Gray Street address since the turn of the 19th Century and became R.S.McPherson Pharmacy in April 1974 when Ronald and Wilma McPherson moved from Aberdeen to take over “Harry B. Robertson Chemist” then owned by Miss Ballantyne. It has constantly changed shape, layout and even colour since then keeping up with the demands of being a busy pharmacy.
We hope that this page will provide you with up-to-date information and access to all the services we provide, when we are open, as well as providing vital healthcare information through the NHS Inform site. We will keep you informed about who we are and what we are doing as often as possible. We’d also like to hear from you if there is anything you’d like to see added to this site or to our services.
As a pharmacy we have always strived to make your visit to us as positive an experience as possible. We will have more than one pharmacist on duty for most of the week as we believe that is the best way to ensure that you get the attention you deserve from our team without distraction. Your healthcare is very important to us and we will endeavour to meet your needs in an efficient yet sympathetic manner.
There is so much help and advice that your pharmacy can provide for you and your family through the Minor Ailment Service and the Chronic Medication Service as well as being able to help with smoking cessation and weight management. Please come in and ask!
While this website is primarily focussed on providing information about our pharmacy services we also have a Facebook page with a more informal outlook on our pharmacy and it’s skincare, beauty and fragrance department with special offers, information on new fragrance launches, skincare tips and all our other unique gifts. Please pay us a visit on Facebook too!
