We popped in this morning and had a brief chat with Chris the pharamacist. As noted in the previous announcement, the centre has two full time doctors, and partners from the main Health Centre in the town will also have attendances there.
Chris says the pharmacy has a full stock of medical supplies, but resource consent bureaucracy has meant that while they can stock sunscreen, they can’t stock sunglasses — and other peripheral products that you may expect.
The same bureaucracy meant that they have made do with an external sign that is the maximum size that they can place before Resource Consent application rules apply.
There are car parks at the rear of the building, so concern by those in the street about congestion should have been alleviated.
