Helping you safely access medication


Man taking medication from pharmacy


It's really important you get access to any medication you need.

Our friendly pharmacy service ensures staff members, service users and carers have safe and effective access to medicines.

We provide accurate and independent information on medicines to keep you well informed. You can access the Choice and Medication portal, where you can find a wealth of information on hundreds of mental health conditions and medications.

As well as this, we provide clinical and dispensing activities for service users across NAViGO’s inpatient and community teams.

We also ensure medicine management resources are used cost-effectively throughout the organisation.

We have one specialist pharmacist, with community pharmacists and technicians based at Lloyds Pharmacy on Littlecoates Road in Grimsby.


How can I access the pharmacy service?

You can visit the Choice and Medication portal at any time.

The portal provides a lot of information on medication and mental health conditions. Content is presented in an easy-to-read style, so you don’t have to be a chemist to understand!

All content on the site is downloadable and printable too. If you don’t have access to the internet or a printer, speak to a member of staff and they will be happy to print what you’re looking for.

If you’d like to arrange an appointment with the pharmacist, please speak to your care coordinator or another NAViGO staff member.

If you’re in a mental health crisis and need urgent help, call the Single Point of Access on (01472) 256256 and select option 3. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Alternatively, you can call NHS 111 free from a landline or mobile phone.
