If you have had unprotected sex and intend to avoid a pregnancy scare, we offer two methods of emergency contraceptives – the morning after pill and the intrauterine device. The tablet, also referred to as the day after pill is most effective if taken within 12-24 hours, but its effectiveness can extend up to 72 hours of having unprotected sex. Our Emergency Contraception Clinic provides free EC, for young and mature women in Portersbar. If you think you have passed that mark of 72 hours, we suggest you consult your gynaecologist and get an IUD fitted within five days.

Medicine Use Review
We are invested in educating you about your medication so that you will learn more about those pills than just its name. The idea behind this free service is to encourage those who take regular or long-term medication to understand random side effects that can be caused and if certain medicines have ill effects when taken together. This free service is offered to you through face to face sit down sessions with your pharmacist, that would last for about 10-15 minutes. You could request for this service at the time your medicine is being dispensed over the counter or can be facilitated at a predetermined time of your convenience. No alterations will be made without consulting you and your GP.
New Medicines Service
Have you been prescribed medication for a long-term disease?
If yes, you may need some assistance to get through the first couple of weeks to make sure that the medicine is administrated to the best of its effectiveness and safety. So, if you have been given medication for Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure you are eligible to obtain our free New Medicines Services (NMS) for a period of 2-3 weeks since you started your medication. If we are unable to provide a solution for any apparent condition, you will be referred to your doctor.
Blister Packs/MDS Service
Are you taking a large quantity of medication or have an elaborate regime that must be followed every single day? Questmoor Pharmacy understands that it can be tricky with your ailments and sometimes with day to day work, you could even forget that you need to take a different set of pills on Tuesday (not the same ones you took one Monday!) So, we offer to help you keep track of what and when you take. Speak to our pharmacist about this free service and he/she will assist you by giving you medication in a tray with your medication sorted out by each day of the week. All you must do is open the small compartment for that day and take the pills at the time that is stamped on them.
Have you been visiting the loo too often or continually feeling thirsty despite drinking quite a lot of water?
Well, it could be nothing, but why don’t you get a diabetes glucose testing done to make sure? Especially if you also have blurry vision or feeling quite lethargic or tired throughout the day, it could be pointing in that direction. At a very nominal fee, we offer you this service so that you could clear your doubts. If it indicates that you have diabetes, fasting blood sugar will be carried out to confirm before advising you to make an appointment with your doctor.
Are you aware of your average blood pressure daily? Do you have a stressful lifestyle or profession that seem to elevate your blood pressure?

High or low, it is essential to find a way to test and manage your pressure at a healthy level. Therefore, Questmoor Pharmacy provides a free consultation to enable you in this process. This will eliminate the need to wait on a GP appointment while bringing to your immediate attention any situations that need managing.
