We are currently providing support to Cohens Chemist to deliver prescribed medication and equipment where needed. This service is available to households who are unable to leave home either because they are over 70 or in a group identified as vulnerable for health reasons and for those that are temporarily self-isolating because a household member has contracted the COVID-19 virus or is displaying potential symptoms.
If your medication is already delivered by a service that was in place prior to this crisis, please be assured that this will continue. If you have locally based relatives or friends that can pick up prescriptions for you, please ask them to help and allow an extra day for collections. In other situations, please contact your street volunteer or telephone us, and we will support you.
A new organisation of NHS Volunteer Responders is being set up nationally and over time the services that we provide in support of the pharmacy may be taken over by them. We’ll continue to provide the support outlined here until a full transition to the new service has happened.
