Welcome to Market Chemist website

Market Chemist has been serving the local community of St John's Wood, Maida Vale and othe local areas for over 30 years, offering a range of services to suit the needs of patients and shopping customers alike..

We are a caring independent chemist, so we happily take the time to get to know our customers and tailor our services accordingly. We are on first name terms with many people and we recognise that we provide a valuable service within the local community.

We aim to provide a fast, reliable dispensing service for both NHS and private prescriptions and for those who cannot get in to see us we offer a FREE Collection and delivery service; we can arrange to pick a prescription up from the patient's GP, dispense the items and deliver them directly to their door.

At Market Chemist we supply a clearly marked weekly dosage box into which we put the patient's medication, day by day, so they can't mix up or miss a dose.

In the comfort and privacy of Market Chemist's Private Consultation Rooms, customers can expect good care and advice on health issues in a very discreet and confidential manner.

Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP)

The way the NHS provides prescriptions to patients will be changing soon. In the near future, patients will have their prescription created and sent electronically directly from their GP to their 'nominated' pharmacy where they wish to receive their medication or appliance from.

There will be a transition period where both paper and electronic versions will be created simultaneously so that the systems that handle the ETP versions have time to settle in and become the single standard means of issue.

We are asking our regular customers to sign a Nomination Form that will allow us to obtain your electronic prescription from your surgery when the NHS Electronic Prescription Service comes into effect.

You will normally be asked to nominate just one pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to and dispensed rather than a variety of pharmacies.

Market Chemist is already equipped with computers and systems that are capable of handling electronic prescriptions. When visiting a pharmacy or your surgery keep an eye out for the symbol shown on the right which identifies where the NHS Electronic Prescription Service is being used.


We continue to aim to provide our customers the best possible service which is why we have been making essential changes on our web presence to make it simpler and friendlier to use to our online customers.
