During the Covid-19 lockdown, the Government funded a delivery service through local community pharmacies to deliver medicines to people who were shielding and did not have anyone who could collect their medicines for them.
With lockdown easing and people now able to go outside more, the Government’s package of support for shielding patients came to an end on 31 July, including the delivery of medicines.
While some pharmacies may fund a delivery service themselves, this may have restrictions on which patients can use the service. Your local pharmacy will be able to tell you of any restrictions.
What support will be available after July?
Visit the Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group website for more advice for clinically vulnerable people.
More information on the support available can also be found on the Government's website.
