Village prescription & medication collection service

Updates to Prescription service with changes to lock down rules.

Now that the lock down has been further eased, and due to a significantly reduced number of requests, Helen will no longer collect medicines on a Friday, as she has been doing. A massive thank you to Helen for all she has done when it was needed.

Having said that, however, if you are vulnerable, the South Leicestershire Medical Centre will continue to dispense and deliver your prescriptions directly to you where necessary for emergency prescriptions. Also, where vulnerable, they will deliver routine repeat dispensed prescriptions to Burton Overy each Monday. Any deliveries must be signed for and can't be left without a signature. Dispensing patients should have received a letter explaining this.

So, where you can, please collect your prescriptions directly from the Smeeton Road dispensary. It is quite safe as you don't need to enter the building. Of course, we can continue to help each other but back to an ad-hoc basis.

If you haven't already, you can sign up to be a dispensing patient so that your prescriptions are ready for you to collect, or if you are vulnerable, to be delivered as outlined.

Many thanks to everyone supporting each other at this time.
