We are encouraging patients to sign up for home deliveries. Most pharmacies offer home delivery service for free, and some at an extra cost.
If patients are unable to pay, we recommed Echo which runs as an App and is free.
We believe relatives should be able to collect prescriptions from GPs if the patient has rung and given the name of the person who they’ve given consent to.
We’ve added a page with local shopping information, opening times, special times for Vulnerable people or others, any restrictions on numbers of items and links to the companies web site are all available.
Any retailer in the area is welcome to submit a form with their details to be added, and anyone can submit corrections simply by clicking a Botton on the site and letting me know what to change.

Screening questions to check for high temperature and coughing will take place beforehand over the phone, or upon arrival if previous contact has not been possible. If face-to-face contact has to be cancelled, they are still offering telephone reviews.
Baby Cafes are currently suspended but the infant feeding counsellors have confirmed their availability to offer telephone support during the same hours. The Health Visiting Duty team will be able to facilitate access to this adapted service and will also provide appropriate signposting to the NCT infant feeding line and National Breastfeeding line.
