What others say about us?

– Testimonials –

My family of 6 have all used West Heath Pharmacy for advice and travel vaccinations over the past two years. From my initial phone call to enquire about availability of the short supply Yellow Fever vaccination, I have found Paul Benson to be professional, friendly, extremely helpful in researching what vaccinations were required, and advising of any additional precautionary vaccinations available  without any hard sell whatsoever, and always mindful of cost. In addition Paul ensured a suitable timetable of injections to fit in with our travel dates, school day and mutual convenience, as the pharmacy is not local to us. I wholly recommend  the service provided by Paul and all the staff at West Heath! The pharmacy was recommended to us by a pharmacist friend  also uses West Heath for her own family’s travel immunisations.
