Chemists/Pharmacies

If you need help or assistance with collecting medicines or anything else, please see:

All pharmacists and chemists are under huge pressure and ask for the help of customers to ensure their vital service can continue as smoothly as possible. At present, most pharmacies do not have the time or the staff to deliver prescriptions so to remain open and fulfil requests, Paresh Shah, owner of CW Andrew said we can all help by following this advice:

“This is a massive period of adjustment. People are generally being very good and they are getting used to the new rules and restrictions. If everyone abides by them, pharmacies can continue to provide a good service to their customers. “Unfortunately, we don’t have the staff to be able to deliver individual prescriptions to people’s homes. People who can’t get out should ask friends or neighbours to pick up prescriptions on their behalf, then phone us to let us know who is collecting for them.”

Help you can help your local pharmacy or chemist!

1. Anyone wanting to pick up a prescription, please call your pharmacist several days in advance to give them time to get it ready for you.

2. You can arrange for a friend or neighbour to collect a prescription on your behalf. Ring the pharmacist in advance to let them know who will be collecting for you.

3. Anyone with a specified medical condition who received one of the 1.5million letters advising them to self-isolate for 12 weeks, should ask family, friends or neighbours to collect their prescriptions.

4. Order your normal quantity of medication and don’t over order; that will help them keep their stock of drugs at manageable levels.

5. Observe the ‘two customers at any one time’ rule and keep apart from staff and other customers by at least 2 metres. Do not enter a pharmacy if you have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 or are in a self-isolation period.  Staff need to be protected to keep pharmacies running.

6. Look out for pharmacies adjusting their opening hours to help them catch up with orders and maintain a sustainable service.
