Pharmacist Under Pressure

Serious Concerns at the Pharmacy:

The Fish Scheme is helping the pharmacy in a couple of ways at the moment, including delivery of prescriptions. The staff there are under almost impossible pressure and current panic behaviour over ordering prescriptions is unnecessary and contributing to their overload.

Your pharmacy needs your help.

As communicated by the Medical Centre a few days ago:

Please allow at least 5 working days for your prescription to be dispensed at your nominated community pharmacy.

Urgent prescriptions will be prioritised so can be dispensed on the day.

We recommend that you order your repeat prescription 2 weeks before it is due, however..... please do not order any earlier than this. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

This additional information from Yogesh at JMW Vicary:

There is no shortage of medication available but...
if you order repeat prescriptions before you need them this may mean that medication is not immediately available for someone who is severely ill.

So, please help everyone by sticking to the Medical Centre advice above. Thank You!
