IMPORTANT  INFORMATION REGARDING

CHANGES TO COVID-19 MEDICATION DELIVERY SERVICE

 

On the 1st August 2020 the Government guidelines regarding shielded and vulnerable patients are being relaxed. This means that our extended delivery  service will stop from this date.

If you are currently using our extended service you will need to make other arrangements for collection. Alternatively, you can contact the Community Hub Service on 01482 393919 for assistance with collection and delivery.

To be eligible to continue to use our free Medication Home Delivery service you must fall into the  housebound category and have no other means of collecting your medication. Please get in touch with your dispensary if you feel this applies to  you.

Please note that deliveries to our community drop-off locations will continue as normal.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for using our extended COVID-19 Delivery Service over recent months. We hope it has been of help to you during this difficult time.
