Stock taking is an annual exercise at B.D.S pharmacies, which not only ensures that the physical inventory is up-to-date, but that the public can obtain supplies when required.

While the above B.D.S pharmacies will close on the listed dates, the polyclinics will remain OPEN throughout the period and will continue to provide the normal services. In addition, emergency prescriptions will be honoured as necessary.
