To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), changes have been made to how you get medicines and advice from a pharmacy at the moment.
Try to call your pharmacy or contact them online before going in person.
Do not go to a pharmacy if:
- you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
- you live with someone who has symptoms
- you’re at high risk from coronavirus
Please get your medicines delivered or ask someone to collect them. You can order repeat prescriptions online.
