Supporting carers during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, pharmacies have had to make necessary changes to their usual ways of working in order to ensure local communities can continue to access their medicines.


The Carers Trust has reported that some carers have had difficulty coping with some of these changes – including queuing outside the pharmacy as a result of social distancing measures and difficulty in accessing and arranging medicines delivery slots. Some young carers have also reported being turned away from pharmacies.

A guide has been published to support unpaid carers to make the most out of their pharmacy team. It sets out helpful hints and tips for carers.
