Calling all Galen Pharmacy patients!

For over 30 years, Galen Pharmacy and Darling’s Pharmacy have been close partners and we have been tremendously proud to have been part of the South Tyneside community together throughout the years.  

Over the past few months in particular, we have seen considerable changes. You may also be aware that in the past 3 years, we tragically lost both Bill and Ann Darling, who had run the pharmacies together since 1958, to cancer. The next generation of Darlings has now taken over.  In response to our changing world, and to ensure that we continue to improve our services to you, our patient, and our community as a whole, we are pleased and excited to announce that Galen Pharmacy is now a full member of Darling’s Pharmacy, and their team has joined the Darling’s Pharmacy family. The practice at Galen Pharmacy will be moved to Darling’s Pharmacy at Chichester Corner (about 200 yards away), which is currently undergoing a serious refurbishment which will seriously enhance the patient experience.

Galen Pharmacy at Stanhope Parade Health Centre will close on 31st December 2020.

Darling’s at Chichester Corner – 1 Stanhope Parade, South Shields, NE33 4BB is the nearest pharmacy to Galen. 

We hope that you will join the team moving from Galen and will transfer your nomination to Darling’s Chichester. 

Please be assured that the service to you, our patient, will be exactly the same. If you have your prescription delivered, you will see the same familiar faces at your door. And if you prefer to come into the shop, the team will be delighted to see you at Chichester corner. 

If you have any questions, or want to discuss the process any further, please just email or contact us on 01914555099

Best wishes
