It was Friday, 20 to 5, end of the day/week and I came to the pharmacy to pick something up and ask a few questions. Hayley J. provided amazing customer service, she was speaking with passion and dedication. She was really honest with me and I felt that she dedicated her time just to me, as she understood my concerns and questions. Great customer service is difficult to find, but rest assured that you will find one in this pharmacy. Hayley should be recognized for her expertise and passion. I will certainly be back. If I had to choose a person who enlightened my week, that would be Hayley J! Thank you, diolch!

Having moved to Cardiff in 2010 I struggled for a number of years to find a pharmacy that I could consistently depend on. Since transferring to cyncoed pharmacy I honestly could not be happier with the great service they provide. Everybody is always so professional with a welcoming smile to greet me. Whenever I have any medication queries I have found the staff to be very knowledgeable and they will go above and beyond to assist me in whatever way they can. I could not recommend this pharmacy enough for the high quality service they provide.

I have got my medication from Cyncoed Pharmacy for 8 years and do not have a single bad word to say about them. It is a fantastic pharmacy and all of the staff are so friendly yet professional and go above and beyond to help despite the fact that it is very busy. Recently my medication was sent to another pharmacy in error and on this occasion since I had run out I collected it from the other pharmacy and it made me appreciate how great Cyncoed Pharmacy is because I did not receive nowhere near the same level of service as I am so used to there. Thankfully this was sorted with my GP surgery and my prescriptions are now back in the very trusted hands of the tremendous staff at Cyncoed Pharmacy!

I would just like to say gigantic thank you to The team at Cyncoed, so many times they have helped me sort out my medication, which I am eternally grateful for. Each an every member of staff always make me feel like a valued customer, and it shows they really care, you only have to see the constant flow of customers that use the pharmacy to know why they are always so busy.when a certain person puts a negative review saying how the staff can be ignorant and other childish comments they forget to mention in their review how rude they have been towards the staff and also abusing the staff with disgusting language but it’s funny they forget to mention that! you are a good pharmacy and all lovely people who work very hard and appreciated by so many people !
