Tower Hamlets residents who have been advised to self-isolate by Track and Trace, or a household contact of a COVID-19 positive patient, should not go to a pharmacy, but arrange for prescriptions to be delivered to them instead.
If you need to collect your prescription, you should do the following:
- Ask family, friends, or a carer to collected your prescription, provided they too have not been advised to self-isolate;
- Contact the NHS Volunteer Responders Programme which supports all shielding, self-isolating, and/or otherwise vulnerable patients by calling 0808 196 3646; or
- Ask your pharmacy or dispensing doctor to arrange delivery where neither of the above is possible.
Home Delivery Services during the COVID-19 outbreak are commissioned throughout England from community pharmacies (and from dispensing doctors) to ensure delivery of medicines to eligible patients who should not present in the pharmacy.
