Calling all Students!

Are you moving into Falmouth for your second year? We are located very close to most student accommodation in Falmouth and our branch Woodlane Surgery is in the middle of the Falmouth Art College Campus. We have walking access to several pharmacies and are a short walk from Falmouth town centre and the beaches. Drop in anytime and pick up a registration form. 

We also are able to continue prescriptions of necessary items over the holidays to save you the trouble of registering in your hometown if you will be back after the breaks. We can send any prescription electronically to pharmacies outside our local area.
