A POPULAR pharmacy is in the running for honours yet again.
But once again, Paul Pendergood put the nomination in the Hartlepool Best of Health awards down to the fantastic customers and patients that the Oxford Road business has.
We don’t expect this but it shows how good our patients are that come here. It shows how they appreciate what we do. It is really nice that they nominate us.Paul Pendergood, Clayfields Pharmacy

“They are always helpful, pleasant. They will deliver to a patient’s home if a family or patient cannot collect their prescription.”
