Will I still be able to access my child or adult’s regular medicines?


Updated 08.09.20

NHS Volunteer Responders will continue to offer support until at least December 2020, incuding collecting and delivering prescribed medications. Call 0808 196 3646 between 8am and 8pm to arrange support or visit the NHS Volunteer Responders website.

You can also order repeat prescriptions online, without needing to go to a GP surgery or pharmacy.

You can collect a prescription yourself, or ask a friend, relative or volunteer to collect it for you.

You could also speak to your pharmacy about delivering your medicine to your home, rather than needing to collect it.

You can order repeat prescriptions using:
the NHS App
GP online services
other online pharmacies

The NHS App also allows you to set and change which pharmacy your prescription is sent to, so you could pick one that will deliver your medicine.

It may also be possible to obtain a prescription of any regular medications you have run out of through NHS 111 online here.
