Opening times waiting times
- Irene (6th Jun 2022 - 17:43:14)

I walked up to lloyds chemist after checking times of opening on line only to find it closed at 5pm not 7pm as stated
Also a notice to saying waiting time is 3hrs. I understand they are short of staff. With such a growing population I think we definitely need another chemist. This is the second time I have been there today
Went there about 12ish to find the queue was so long it was difficult to get into the chemist. Think we need to protest more

With regards to prescriptions.
You can request a paper prescription from your surgery which you can then collect from the surgery and take it to any chemist. For instance I collected my paper prescription from Liphook surgery and took it to Boots in Petersfield, where there was no queue and only a 5 min wait. ( I was already making a trip to Petersfield)
Sorry not very helpful for people with mobility/ transport issues.

That’s strange, because after all the discussions on here and Facebook I thought I would call the surgery and ask that Lloyds pharmacy be removed from my records as the place to automatically send prescriptions to and in future collect paper copies so I could choose where was convenient to collect from. I was told that paper prescriptions were no longer available as it was all done electronically.

I order my prescriptions via the NHS app and have it delivered (for free) by Lloydsdirect (I had to create an account and link it to my NHS account)

I was removed from Lloyds by the surgery in the station. Transferred to GEES of Bordon delivered to my door within days . Fantastic service they keep all my prescription records and I can ring them if there’s a problem. Which I have not had.

I too have asked for paper prescriptions, but was told that they no longer issue them and it is all done on the computer now.
I have asked that all my prescriptions be sent to Day Lewis in Petersfield going forward.. It is a bind having to catch the train each time, however this is a much more preferable option than waiting for Lloyds in the village.

Speaking of closing times I drove into the Sainburys petrol station a few weeks back, there was only one other customer on the forecourt and no customers in the shop. It was 7:32PM when I asked the cashier for standard car wash and I was told they have just switched it off as they are closing... They close at 8PM! 28 whole minutes prior to closing they removed the service I suspect entirely off there own ideas so they can get away bang on 8...... I get it if I turned up at 7:55 or 7:50 even still get it at 7:45 but I would have been through the wash by 7:38 at the latest.


Same with the post office in Co-Op.... opening time is 9am, they will sit there doing nothing behind the glass for 20 mins looking at their watch until its 9:00:01 before even speaking to you.

This is a very British style of customer service, its like the employees are duty bound to make sure they don't work a single second before starting time or after closing time. British employees tend to look utterly annoyed they have to serve an employer or customers likes its a massive hassle in their days.
