With the general easing of restrictions, and as some of our volunteers are returning to work, we have been reviewing our AbiMeds activities. Our core service has always been taking telephone requests and organising collection and deliveries of medications and we are continuing this for the time being. In addition some pharmacies have asked us to deliver prescriptions for people who have not come via our system: we will be cutting back on that, so if people would like to have their medications delivered by our lovely cyclists they should request it via our phone line 01865 818351 rather than leaving it to the pharmacy to organise. NB some pharmacies have their own delivery service, so check with them.
We will continue to deliver on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but where possible please phone your request in the day before. However if it is an emergency please call anyway as we will always try to help if we can.
We will keep the situation under review, we know some people are still shielding and others don’t feel comfortable about going into shops and our aim of minimising queues remains, so we will continue doing what we’ve been doing for you for as long as we can and for as long as it makes sense to do so!
