Tornagrain Pharmacy is now open

Tornagrain Pharmacy is now open

We are delighted that Tornagrain Pharmacy is now open offering Pharmacy First and Medicines Care and Review services along with private travel and occupational vaccinations.

James Higgins, pharmacist and a director of the company behind Dalneigh Pharmacy and Travel Health Clinic, opened the doors to their new branch. Tahir Rashid is moving from the firm's Dalneigh pharmacy to manage the Tornagrain pharmacy.  Born in Dundee, he studied at Robert Gordon before moving to Inverness in 2019 to work in the pharmacy at Newcraigs Hospital.

Tahir said: "I've always loved the idea of working for an independent pharmacy in a close-knit community and Tornagrain more than fits the bill.  Now more than ever, it's great to have as many facilities as possible within walking distance and our aim is for the pharmacy to be a real hub along with the shop.

The pharmacy has a five strong team and will be open 08.30 to 18.00 Monday to Friday and 09.00 to 13.00 on Saturday.

Along with serving the fast-growing community at Tornagrain, free deliveries are available to anyone struggling to access a pharmacy in Inverness, Nairn and the surrounding areas and will be carried out by a fully electric van with a 250 mile charging range.  To place an order or to speak to a pharmacist, customers should call 01463 547009.

The pharmacy joins the already up and running in the town range from tennis courts, allotments, play area and a community hall to an outdoor nursery and the newly expanded grocery shop.
