New arrangements have been put in place to reduce to an absolute minimum the numbers of people picking up medicines from the surgery premises. All prescription medicines will now be delivered to Great and Little Wilbraham.
Order online as far as possible
For repeat prescriptions allow 5 days for the prescription to be ready
For all prescriptions, a message will be sent to the patient to say the prescription is ready for delivery. The practice will phone the patient to arrange payment.
For all patients who are shielding (Great and Little Wilbraham):
The medicines will be picked up by a lead prescription volunteer for each village at 2 pm each day and delivered to the patient’s home.
For all other patients:
In Great Wilbraham there are two options:
- Delivery to the Post Office Patients for patients who have previously used this service. For patients who are self isolating they should ask a relative or friend to pick up from the Post Office on their behalf. If this is not possible a request should be made to the volunteer service.
- The medicines will be picked up by a daily volunteer who will deliver it to the patient’s home
Please check with the surgery which arrangement will be made.
For acute (on the day) prescriptions the patient should telephone the lead prescription volunteer, Chris Goodchild (07471 095452), or their Local Contact (on the leaflet posted through their door and on the village website).
