PRESCRIPTION NOTICE

Please note we will only be able to supply 28 days of medication at a time, this is due to new guidance to help with supply issues.  Please do not order medication if you have enough at home and only order when it is needed again this will help with the supply issues.

Due to the high demand in requests for prescriptions the turn around time is now 72hrs. We are working hard to process these requests as quickly as we can. Please only order if you are due to run out.

Information for Carers

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
