Find your nearest pharmacy quickly and easily!
England has nearly 10,000 pharmacies (well - 9,755 according to the UK's Health and Social Care Information Centre) but finding one when away from home, and in a hurry, can be a difficult and stressful task. Don't get caught out and about needing plasters or nappies, buy it now and be prepared for that next minor emergency without having to hunt around for a chemists.
This app is based on data provided by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)* and covers 99.37% of all the pharmacies in England.
You can search for a pharmacy/chemist around your current location, or look for one in another area (whilst out, or for a distant relative) via a simple place name or postcode search. Distances can be displayed in metric or imperial units (configured in the application preferences).
Find Pharmacies uses the built in GPS on the iPhone to get your current location, but can also locate an iPod Touch in built-up WiFi areas. If your location cannot be determined automatically then you can always enter your post code to get started. Please note that an internet connection is required to get location and map data.
