Ask family, friends and neighbours to support you and use online services. If this is not possible, then the council is setting up a community hub to help those advised to stay at home. We will share information as soon as it becomes available.
The government is helping pharmacies to deliver prescriptions. Prescriptions will continue to cover the same length of time as usual. If you do not currently have your prescriptions collected or delivered, you can arrange this by:
- asking someone who can pick up your prescription from the local pharmacy, (this is the best option, if possible)
- contacting your pharmacy to ask them to help you find a volunteer (who will have been ID checked) or deliver it to you
You may also need to arrange for collection or delivery of hospital specialist medication that is prescribed to you by your hospital care team.
If you receive support from health and social care organisations, for example, if you have care provided for you through the local authority or health care system, this will continue as normal. Your health or social care provider will be asked to take additional precautions to make sure that you are protected.
