We are a pharmacy, first and foremost. However our patients and customers continuously tell us they like the “plus” in Pharmacy First Plus such as our friendly and helpful staff, our services and products, our opening hours. Pharmacy First Plus prides itself in providing excellent advice and knowledge to our patients and customers in all aspects of our product and service offering. Reacting to our customer’s desire for innovative healthcare solutions is our main goal. Explaining health, illness and diseases in a way that customers can understand is our strength. We provide services such as prescription collection (from surgeries), prescription delivery (to your door), monitored dosage systems including Biodose and Manerex, health clinics, seasonal flu vaccine, cholesterol tests, HbA1c monitoring, to name a few. We also provide an all-encompassing service to many nursing and care homes in the Cork area.

Your Local Pharmacy
Our five pharmacies are located around the suburbs in Cork at St. Patrick’s Woollen Mills in Douglas, Hazelwood Shopping Centre in Glanmire, in Grenagh Village, Onslow Gardens in the Northside of the city and the village of Tower. These pharmacies have been serving their localities for up to 40 years (in the case of Douglas). We take great pride in supporting our local communities in every way we can.
At Pharmacy First Plus, health is our main focus. Patients want to know about specific medical conditions, specific medication and most importantly how to manage their own health. Our pharmacists are trained to assist patients in whatever way suits them best. Our pharmacists are available at all times to discuss simple or complex queries. Appointments are not necessary, however if you wish to have an in-depth consultation with one of our pharmacists, you can contact them in advance so they can set aside time for you. We provide innovative health clinics at Pharmacy First Plus where we measure aspects of your health and give you results there and then. These clinics are by appointment and measure such areas as blood pressure, body mass index, diabetes (HbA1c), percentage body fat, percentage visceral fat, cholesterol (HDL, LDL, Triglycerides). We have new Anti-coagulation clinics for patients on Warfarin, asthma clinics and will expand these clinical services in the future. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing requirements and guidance from our regulators, our health clinic services have been severely impacted. At present we are unable to carry out one-to-one consultations with patients for greater than15 minutes. This impacts on our ability to provide comprehensive health clinics for the moment.
