DISPENSING PATIENTS who are SHIELDING
If you are shielding, please try to arrange for someone else, a family member, friend, Carer or volunteer, to collect your prescription.
If you are unable to arrange collection we are working with staff and volunteers to arrange a delivery service. If you need our help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and contact number. Please include the words ‘DELIVERY SHIELDING’ in the subject of the email. Alternatively, please telephone us – please note that the Dispensary Line is only open between 10 and 12:30 but our Reception Team will be able to take your details.
