About J M & W Darling Ltd Pharmacy

Established in 1905 by John (‘JM’) Darling, Darling’s has been serving the people of South Tyneside as an independent pharmacy for more than 100 years. Passed from generation to generation, Darling’s truly has family at its heart. After John there was William until his death in 1956 and then Bill until his death in 2017 and Ann who died in 2019. Their eldest son, Paul continues the tradition.  Paul is supported by his cousin Jacky Lockwood who is a Director, and you will also see her out and about as one of our delivery drivers. Geoff Robson has also recently joined the team of Directors.

Welcome to your family’s local pharmacy, run by our family for over 100 years

We operate three branches. Stepping off the Metro at Chichester, you will be greeted by the familiar, friendly sight of Darling’s on Chichester Corner – the beating heart and the original branch. From here we expanded to open our Dean Road branch and our branch next to Farnham Medical Centre.

Enter any of the branches and you will be welcomed by our friendly staff offering a personalised, and professional service providing expert knowledge and advice.
