Latest Update – Supplies & Funds/Doctors & Medicine Issues/Local Deliveries

Supplies & Funds
The Emergency Donation Centre is open 4-5pm to receive any items or monetary donations. All monies used to re-stock supplies.

The daily helpers will deliver any orders from 4.30 onwards. They will knock on your door and leave bags on the step, collecting any donations left – please inform the contact number/email listed to say you are leaving a donation and leave in a sealed envelope. If not able to leave on the front step, then somewhere obvius that causes no extra contact issues.

Doctors & Medicine Issues
Both the surgery nd the chemists are running at full speed. As you can appreciate, they are overwhelmed with the demand. Some of the issues lays with incorrect use of the automated service. Basic guide:

If you want to order repeat medication
Dial 01724 713920
Listen to Dr Fraser welcome message
Select option 3 prescriptions
Select option 1
Leave your name, address and date of birth and either “Please order all my repeat”
“Please order all my repeat excluding items xxx”

If you NEED delivery ask for delivery at time of order. This service is checked every 30 minutes for messages. Prescriptions are taking 72 hours to get ready. For URGENT ESSENTIAL medication, please contact the Council contact numbers and we will try to assist with delivery. Weldrick’s Chemist – 01724 710263
