Getting medicine delivered
Your local pharmacy will often deliver medicines to you if you ask them to do so. Many pharmacies also offer delivery services for repeat prescriptions and you can register online (e.g. Pharmacy2U, LLOYDS Pharmacy, Boots)
If you have been written to by the NHS to tell you that you should stay at home for 12 weeks because you are extremely vulnerable (known as Shielding), you can register on GOV.UK to have your medicine delivered.
The Council can help you register for delivery – contact the Emergency Helpline on 020 3045 5398 or apply online.
