Stockpiling medication

We have had a lot of calls from patients requesting medication that they have not needed for years and extra quantities of existing medications ‘just in case’. Pharmacies have only a limited supply of medications at any one time so over-ordering could lead to other patients missing out. Pharmacies are also under increased demand from patients who are self-isolating requesting delivery of medications.

Please be considerate and order only what you need for the next month. Please be patient with the reception and pharmacy staff who are all doing their best for you. Thank you for bearing with us at this challenging time.
