Wilbrahams and Six Mile Bottom COVID Support Group

Update October 2020

After a quiet summer, some aspects of life have returned to normal. However, sadly the pandemic is not over. The Wilbrahams and Six Mile Bottom COVID-19 Support Group is still available to provide help if you find yourself needing to self-isolate or shield. As some details have changed, you can find an updated list of names and contact numbers on the back of this leaflet. These people are available as a first point of call for new requests. If you can’t get through, please try one of the others nearby, or a coordinator. Also, if one of the other volunteers has been helping you up to now, it is likely that this support can be continued – so please check with them first.

We are also refreshing our list of volunteers. We don’t expect this to be busy – perhaps occasional shopping or essential errands. If you would like to volunteer please speak to your local contact, email the coordinators or sign up via the online form at https://bit.ly/wsmb-vol.

Prescriptions

Bottisham Medical Practice is in the process of setting up a delivery service which should be up and running by mid-November.  Details of how you can register will be put in your repeat medication bag.  Further details will also be available on-line.  In the meantime, if you are struggling to pick up your medication, please call the practice (01223 810030) and speak to the Social Prescriber
