Change to rota pharmacies

NEW ARRANGEMENTS for pharmacies’ out-of-hours opening will be introduced at the start of next month by NHS Tayside.

The health authority will now only schedule rota services over Christmas and new year when the usual pharmacy services are not available.

For the Christmas and New Year rota services, NHS Tayside will ensure that a pharmacy is open in each locality across the region. The rota pharmacy will be integrated with other services, such as the out-of-hours arrangements, to make sure patients can access the care that they need.

As the rota organised by NHS Tayside will no longer operate, details of the pharmacies open on Sundays or public holidays will not be routinely published in the local press.

Patients can find out where their nearest pharmacy is online at or by calling 01382 527913 or NHS 24 on 08454 24 24 24.
