Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to express my concern and disappointment at the service at your pharmacy on (Date). I often collect prescriptions from your shop for my family and myself.

On (Date) at around ___ am/pm, I went to your pharmacy to collect the following medicines:
1. (Medicine name), (Quantity), 2. (Medicine name), (Quantity), and 3. (Medicine name), (Quantity).

I was given the medicines in a hurry as there were other customers to attend to, and only one pharmacist was there to serve all. When I arrived at home, and checked on the medicines, I noticed that one of them was wrongly given i.e. (Name of the Medicine). I request you to replace the medicine with the right one.

I hope that you understand the detrimental effect it might have on the health of the patient, if I had not noticed the difference in time. I am truly worried about getting my future prescriptions from you.

I would therefore strongly suggest that you appoint an appropriate number of pharmacists that can handle the work effectively without any mistake, and which will ultimately benefit the patients and you as well.
