Home delivery of medicines and appliances in impacted areas

The NHS Home Delivery Service will be commissioned from both community pharmacies and dispensing doctors from 1 until 31 August 2020, to ensure access to prescription medicines for clinically extremely vulnerable patients who continue to need to shield if they live in the impacted areas of Leicester, Blackburn with Darwen and Luton.

The provision of this service throughout August will give patients in those areas, who have been advised to shield until 17 August, time to make alternative arrangements for access to their prescription medications once the service ceases. The announcement and further details can be found here.
