UPDATED 7th April 2020
We are working hard in the current climate to maintain and deliver our dispensary services. Community Pharmacies are equally overwhelmed at present and it is important that you DO NOT switch your choice of pharmacy service unnecessarily as this could cause delay to your care.
In order to limit movement and support government guidance regarding social distancing and social isolation it is important that we take appropriate measures to safeguard our patients and our staff and minimise footfall where possible.
We have set up a drop off points for prescriptions at the Post Office/Shop in Spofforth, Follifoot Post Office and The Shoulder of Mutton, Kirby Overblow. Deliveries are daily to these locations and prescriptions will be available to collect after 16:00 – please note – all patients will receive an SMS message or telephone call to inform when ready.
For those in Burn Bridge, Huby, Weeton and North Rigton we now have volunteer drivers delivering to your home address. Every patient will be contacted via dispensary when this will be delivered, please ensure you are available to take receipt of for your delivery.
All patients are requested to order medication online where possible. If you are due review please use the text box to order your medication as some reviews may be delayed but we will still provide medication where safe to do so based on clinical decision.
Finally, as per government guidance we will continue to only provide 28 days supply of medication at this time. Please do not ask for more as we will not supply.
We thank all our patients for there support and assistance at this time.
