This month we were delighted to see the official opening of Minerva Clinical Services, Heyford Park’s first on-site pharmacy.
The pharmacy will provide day-to-day clinical services to residents and the surrounding community, including prescriptions and repeat prescriptions, over the counter medicines, and general advice from the pharmacist.
For those already registered with Alchester Medical Group, specific appointments with a doctor can also be arranged via pre-booked appointments. In due course Minerva pharmacy expects to offer additional clinical services, such as flu jabs.
As Heyford Park continues to grow, the pharmacy will provide an essential service to the community and cut journeys to nearby pharmacies in Deddington and Bicester.
Residents of surrounding villages, including Lower Heyford, Somerton, Ardley with Fewcott and Middleton Stoney can also use the new pharmacy at Heyford Park.
Commenting, Minerva’s pharmacist Manni Cheggar said:
“The entire community can now benefit from the services that we’re able to provide at the pharmacy. Anyone who lives or works locally can be quickly served with the healthcare items that are always so vital when they’re ill or when being treated for an ongoing condition. The new pharmacy is very easily accessed – it’s on Camp Road just up from Sainsbury’s – and we invite everyone to drop in and talk with us about how our services can help their personal needs.”
Jeanne Evett, Sales & Marketing Director at Dorchester Living, added:
“Heyford Park is really growing and it’s fantastic to see so many new residents settling into their homes. As part of our long term plans, we’ve always intended to provide a new pharmacy, so the local community does not have to travel for day-to-day clinical needs. Along with other recently opened shops and services, like our bar, hotel and restaurant, there is now a really balanced mix of facilities for residents and the wider community to take advantage of.”
The pharmacy is located at Unit 3, The Station House, Camp Road, Heyford Park, OX25 5BZ. For more information visit minervaclinicalservices.co.uk or call 01869 228822
