About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Having left the A&E department with a prescription from the Doctor who told us we could collect the medication from the pharmacy in the main building. We approached the information desk for directions. They informed us it was closed on a Sunday and we were to go into the town centre. Upon driving around for half an hour we eventually found one at Asda who then informed us only Pinderfields could prescribe this medication !!! Hence back home with no medication. Not a good service provider.
