I need my medication sent to me

About free drug delivery

Our volunteer-run, free drug delivery service started in June 2006 using a Subaru Justy and a team of volunteer drivers, this team are ably coordinated by Graham Frost. The community raised funds for a new car in 2010.

This service is for the 70% of our patients classed as ‘dispensing patients’ and means those rural patients who live more than a mile from the surgery and who receive their medication directly from us, rather than from the chemist.

To register, email the surgery at [email protected] or tick the relevant box below.

We deliver to your door if you genuinely need that service or to the local shops in Winsford, Exford and Withypool.  If you request, we can leave the drugs in a sealed box that must be waterproof and child and animal proof or else with a designated neighbour.  If you’re not there and none of these options are available, we return the prescription to the surgery and you will then have to make arrangements to have the drugs collected yourself.

Delivery schedule

Although we have a set route each day we have no set order for deliveries.  It is up to each driver and depends on just who is getting deliveries that week, so one week you may get your drugs in the morning, but the next week it may be in the afternoon. In the event of flood, blizzard, earthquake, nuclear war or asteroid impact our regular delivery schedule may be interrupted, but we will do our best to let you know as soon as we can.

These schedules are likely to change from time to time, but we will let you know and post that information here.
