COVID 19 - Medication Information 

As a practice, we recognise that supply of medication is crucial at this difficult time and that it is natural to feel anxious about any disruption. We are assured that no significant shortages are expected, and there are plans in place to maintain supplies. It's important that patients only order what they need at the usual time. There is no need to stockpile or order earlier than usual. This will help limit the pressure on our reception staff, dispensary and community pharmacies. If you are self-isolating, another adult can collect medication on your behalf - it doesn't need to be a relative. We will update patients as soon as possible if there any changes to prescription systems. Thank you for your co-operation
