Community pharmacy services 

  • some community pharmacies will be open. Please check the NHS website or your pharmacy’s own website for details.

Pharmacists and their teams are an essential part of the NHS and need your help and support during the coronavirus pandemic. Always treat our staff with respect, they are doing their best to provide you with the medicines and advice you need.

Dental services

  • NHS dental practices are providing urgent telephone advice and triage. If you have a regular dentist you should call them as a first step. Please do not visit the practice. The dentist will assess your situation over the phone, including giving advice and, if needed, prescriptions for painkillers or antibiotics which can then be collected from or delivered by a local pharmacy.

  • If you don’t have a regular dentist and need urgent dental advice, call NHS 111.
  • If your dentist or NHS 111 think that you need urgent face-to face treatment, they will refer you for local urgent dental care so that any necessary emergency dental treatment can be carried out.
  • If a face-to-face appointment is necessary, you will be advised on what to do. Urgent dental centres have measures in place to minimise any risk from coronavirus
  • Please do not visit A&E departments with dental problems.

Important information on prescriptions 

  • Order repeat prescriptions in your usual quantities at the usual time. Over ordering of your medicines may mean someone else has to go without their medicines.
  • Order your usual prescription online or by an app.   You can order repeat prescriptions through Patient access, on the NHS App. You can find out about ordering medicines online at www.nhs.uk  Many pharmacies will also order your prescriptions if you do not have your own internet access.
    • We no longer print paper prescriptions. All prescriptions are sent electronically directly to the pharmacy of your choice so please make sure that we know where to send your prescriptions when ordering medication.
