Former butcher’s shop converted into pharmacy

Have your say

WORK is under way to turn a former pork butcher’s shop into a chemist.

The Co-operative Pharmacy is to move to 43 Church Street.

The business is relocating from Marlborough, as the neighbouring GP surgery is also moving, to the new Seaham Primary Care Centre in Viceroy Street.

The former Dickson’s shop has been given a new front and entrance, with a separate planning application put in for the signs which will go up outside the store.

A spokesman for the pharmacy said: “We are relocating our pharmacy on to the high street and hope to open within the next month.

“Services will transfer, including medicines usage reviews, new medicines services, minor ailments scheme and voucher initiative for nicotine replacement therapy.”
