The two pharmacies in Pontardawe seem unable to cope with the demand. Repeat prescriptions are often delayed in spite of being ordered a week in advance. Customers are faced with long queues when arriving at the pharmacies (at the present time outside the pharmacy). When the occassion arises that a prescription needs to be filled that day it is sometimes more convenient to travel into Neath rather than undergo the hassle of waiting in Pontardawe. It is common practice for someone to see the length of the queue and go away hoping that it will be quieter later on (but not much chance of that!) You have to be pretty desparate to join the queue if you only want something like a packet of paracetamol.

The long waiting times and queues at the 2 existing pharmacies make life very difficult for people in the area.
