An update from the Fish Scheme delivery team
As lockdown restrictions are eased there will inevitably be a transition period while people who no longer need the home delivery service are removed from the pharmacy's temporary home delivery list but you can help with this transition too:
- If you no longer have a need for your prescription to be home delivered, ie you or a friend/family member are now able to collect your prescription from the pharmacy, please ask the pharmacy to remove you from the home delivery list by emailing them at: email@example.com quoting your name and DOB. This will avoid wasting volunteer and drivers time when they try to deliver packages for people who are not in to receive them.
- There is no need to worry about queues at the pharmacy these days — they are generally a thing of the past.
- By collecting your prescription from the pharmacy you can help support our pharmacy at the same time by giving your custom to the shop side of the business which has seen a dramatic fall in turnover as a result of this crisis.
JMWVicary has done a brilliant job over the past three months. In the face of a huge increase in workload and staffing issues common to so many businesses during this crisis, Yogesh and his staff have worked really hard to provide an efficient service to Haddenham, the surrounding villages and increasingly to Thame residents too.
Lockdown and the need for self isolation resulted in a huge increase in demand for home delivery of prescriptions — a demand which volunteers from Haddenham Fish Scheme and subsequently a Love Thame Facebook group have helped meet.
However, now that lockdown is easing, our Fish Scheme delivery volunteers are increasingly finding that recipients are not in to receive delivery of their prescription. This results in a lot of wasted time as the volunteer returns, sometimes more than once, in order to complete the delivery or has to take it back to the pharmacy for delivery another day.
In the meantime, many thanks to our team of nine Fish Scheme volunteers who have worked so hard delivering prescriptions every weekday, twice a day since 22nd March.
