We offer many services including a free prescription ordering and delivery service covering the whole of South Tyneside. Please see our “Services” page for more information.

Lateral Flow Tests

At Darling’s Pharmacy, we are acutely aware of the pressures on household budgets.  We also know that many people still need to take Lateral Flow Tests, and they are no longer available free.

So, as part of our commitment to the community of South Tyneside, we have decided to sell Lateral Flow Tests at cost price.  No profit.  No mark-up.  No handling charge.  This means that we will be selling single tests at £1.46 and packs of 5 at £7.10. 

We will be happy to deliver these tests, free of charge even though we are selling them with no mark-up. This offer is open to all who live in South Tyneside, whether Darlings’ patients or not.  It will be limited to a maximum of 10 tests per person per week.  The offer is while stocks last and can be withdrawn at any time.

Orders can be taken in the pharmacy, by telephoning 0191 4554551 or by emailing admin@darlingspharmacy.co.uk
