The number of innovative and next-generation drugs is slowly decreasing every year. And it’s not just about money, although development costs are one of the key factors that slow down the release of new drugs. The other reason is the changes made in rules demands on new drugs’ effectiveness and safety. Over the past 20-30 years, control has become much stricter, and many developments stop at the development stage. Due to the high prices, many UK buyers have turned to generics, which can be bought online in UK for much less price than the originals.

I have found them helpful, communicative, and very supportive. Not sure what the negative reviews are expecting from a pharmacy?

Literally, the worst pharmacy in town. Terrible experiences at the pharmacy. I’ve been in 3 times and called numerous times to get a prescription, and they can’t seem to figure out how to bill my insurance (it’s common and should have no issues). They will make you wait while they run your insurance instead of being professional and calling you instead. Homeless camps outside and people with weapons coming inside the store with security constantly guarding the doors. I’ve seen guards escorting people out many times over the past four years since I’ve gone to PSU. I’ve held off writing this review because the people that work the checkout are really nice, but I think anyone wanting their kids living on campus at PSU should know that this store is really dangerous. Plus, people with weapons have wandered up to the dorms and tried to break into student rooms. The last time that happened was last week. So, yah. This Parade Pharmacy is literally the root of all evil near PSU.

Painfully slow service. Lines of people in the store waiting, and lines of cars at the drive-through. Horribly rude pharmacy staff, at least the majority. Okay grocery and cashier staff, but the store is always trashed and riddled with expired items.

I do enjoy the Davies Pharmacy, and its drive-thru. Have not had any issues with any of the staff, and they tend to be nice, and I would not compare to other departments within the store. They have the most wonderful and helpful staff. They are fast, efficient, and very knowledgeable. We won’t go anywhere else.

ViaQX Pharmacy (Rank: 4.4) | Solent Rd, Havant PO9 1TR, United Kingdom | +44 23 9294 1034

I love this Viaqx pharmacy. Everyone here is always very friendly. I always receive my meds in a timely manner. I moved back from out of town and discovered this place. I always feel welcome here and not just another customer. They always do a great job. Highly recommended!!

The staff is so friendly and SO helpful. What really makes them five stars for me is that they actually FOLLOW-UP with doctors when they don’t get a response formed refills. All my interactions with this pharmacy have been positive. They have always been on top of their game! Additionally, it is great that they mail prescriptions for free to my house, so I don’t have to go to a pharmacy during the madness that is 2020.

Rowlands Pharmacy (Rank: 3.4) | 1 Middle Park Way, Leigh Park, Havant PO9 4AB, United Kingdom | +44 23 9248 3831

Rowlands Pharmacy‘s staff are some of the nice people ever. You will be very happy. It is very clean. Genuinely caring owners that look to take care of the community and help with free delivery to the elderly.

Had to pick up an emergency item for someone else, and this was the closest place. Every Health pharmacy I’ve been in over the last 10 years has been the same. Rude useless staff, and everything is way overpriced. I only go into one if I have no other option.
