As the COVID-19 situation has developed we have seen our community pharmacy colleagues begin to struggle under the demand for prescriptions.
Therefore, to support our colleagues please could we ask the following:
- Only request medication you need
- Allow extra time for the pharmacy to process your prescription request (allow a week at least to be safe)
- Place prescription requests responsibly. Do not order medications ‘just in case’ – this can lead pharmacies to run short of stock and create unnecessary waits for other patients
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this challenging period.
