Ordering Your Prescription only Medicines.
Please do not ask for additional supplies of your regular prescription-only medicines from the GP.
DHSC Policy is NOT to allow this.
The GPs have been instructed NOT to supply additional volumes of medicines and NOT to supply medicines earlier than they are due to be ordered. This is in keeping with advice in the UK and to protect all the members of the community and make sure we have enough stock of medicines on island for everyone.
Analgesics and Self-care Items for Potential Covid-19 Infections.
We always advise that each home has a small supply of medicines kept in a secure place for the treatment of minor illness. It is understandable that families wish to keep a stock of medicines should they become ill or need to self-isolate.
The current advice is to use paracetamol for the headaches and fever associated with Covid-19 infections, but you may wish to purchase other items in case you need them. Your pharmacist will be able to advise you on some practical items you can keep in.
Please be mindful of the shortage of ‘over-the-counter’ medicines and please do not stockpile. Many pharmacies are restricting the amounts that can be purchased to one pack per patient of paracetamol (tablets and liquid). Please respect this to protect our community.
