Do not visit your pharmacy if you or someone you live with has COVID-19 symptoms.
If possible, order your prescription at least seven days before you need it and only order as much medicine as you need. Stockpiling medicine can be dangerous and lead to shortages for other people.
If you cannot get to the pharmacy yourself, you are advised wherever possible to ask friends, family or neighbours to collect on your behalf. Advice on collecting a prescription for someone else
Find a pharmacy
Patients will need to check with their pharmacy if this is a free service or not, and be prepared to pay a small fee for this service.
