So was visiting family in Leigh and needed a valid EU/ EEA percription filled. I think the staff at the pharmacy need further training coming from a professionally qualified nurse. If you have a valid EU/ EEA prescription for antibiotics for a severe painful infection (of which can legally still be filled in the UK as EU/EEA prescriptions are still valid in the UK, even after Brexit) which is the law and never had any other problems at other Boots pharmacy's just this one in leigh twice. Do not bother going to get them filled here at this pharmacy which was the 2nd time I visited this specific Boots and each time not a positive experience.
My encounter with the pharmacy assistant Not the pharmacist, apparently called Sue (S luggish, U seless, E xhausting) (04/08/2023) at the pharmacy counter was absolutely jaw droppingly shocking, the lady stated "we close in 20 minutes" and then followed by "go the the pharmacy across the road" I was shocked and then the assistant basically gave me a load of verbal dribble that she basically couldn't be bothered to fill my prescription oh and by the way she stated to me that apparently "were not in the EU anymore" NSSherlock. I didn't know that. To add there was a bird flying around the store and the staff seemed more engaged on the pigeon rather than doing their jobs and assisting customers. If I could give 0 stars I would. Overall absolutely useless, I suggest traveling further to Manchester Boots or Boots Trafford Centre. But still remain a loyal customer of Boots just not this one as they are inept and feckless.
If your in leigh and need emergency antibiotics head to Peak Pharmacy up the road absultely positive experience there twice! Just not at Boots Leigh 😂

You can't go wrong with boots but I do feel there out pricing themselves from our current economic climate.

Boots, Leigh is understaffed, one person on the till every time I go in. Today my Mam was looking for something specific, Trish was on the cashiers desk and went above and beyond to look for what she wanted and when it wasn’t in stock she ordered it on line for her so thank you Trish!! 👍

Well layed out store lots on shelves but not many staff to help .I waited a very long time for help but had to call to a staff member who walked passed she was very helpful and found what I wanted .for the size of store the amount of staff was poor .
It's a shame the store is very good .

Shop assistant who served me didn’t acknowledge me at all and carried on a conversation with the security guard about what he had got his son for Christmas. I just found it rude.

Forgot myself recently and called into boots pharmacy Leigh. Staff member abrupt and unhelpful, similar to previous visit a while ago after which I switched chemists to Tim's and Parker. Tim's and Parker are great, politeness and helpfulness are the norm there in my experience.

Good shop, been there for years. I think the shop has lost it's sparkle. It's a bit dull with the lighting and hardly any staff.

This pharmacy is great when you've got nothing to do and like to stand around waiting to be served. Prescription - no problem,
OTC - get lost.

The lady Sue who helped my friend to find a triangular bandage for her arm was so friendly and even guided us with putting it on. She deserves this recognition for her help. P.S. tell her that she can wear hair rollers to work in a morning if she wants!

I could not make my mind up what to buy for my very sore little toe because it has now developed into a very painful corn, A very polite and friendly young girl approached me and went above and beyond to help me choose the right product to solve my problems.
I regret not getting her name as I can only describe her as having brown hair and glasses, with a great personality and a clear passion for her job and helping people.
