Why the prescription delivery service is useful
Travelling long distances for your repeat prescriptions can be a pain, especially if you find travel difficult due to a condition or disability. You shouldn’t have to worry about the time it takes to the pharmacy and back.
As a local community pharmacy, we have a duty of care to our patients and to keep our vulnerable patients safe and stress-free. We currently offer a free prescription delivery service for our patients who qualify for the service.
What the prescription delivery service process involves
As a patient, you can choose our pharmacy to dispense all of your repeat or one-off prescriptions. After having it assembled, we will deliver your prescriptions straight to your door.
We offer our patients the choice to opt into our prescription delivery service. If you’re willing to access this service we will be more than happy to collect your prescriptions on your behalf with the necessary permissions in place. Our service is completely confidential and your prescriptions will be delivered to you at your earliest convenience.
Your medication can be delivered to any address in the UK – wherever suits you best. This can be your home, work, a neighbour or a member of your family.
Delivery is free and you can choose to have it posted through your letterbox, sent signed for or you can choose a safe place for Royal Mail to leave your parcel if you’re not home. In some cases, a signature will be needed, for example, if you are ordering controlled drugs or refrigerated items.
We recommend ordering your repeat prescription at least 5 working days before you need it. This gives your GP enough time to approve it and for us to deliver it to you.
