Information about the Covid Hotsite in Shrewsbury

The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCG’s Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service has been experiencing a huge increase in demand. 

 

We would like to remind people that there is absolutely no need to order your prescriptions earlier than usual, or order more than you need and stockpile. Patients should continue to order their prescriptions as normal, when they are due. We’re also seeing a knock-on effect at our local community pharmacies who are also under a lot of pressure.  

 

We would like to thank all our patients for their cooperation during this time.

Patients can place orders by emailing dispensary.pfmc@nhs.net and by dropping repeat slips in the letter box at the back of the surgery.

Patients can also email shropshire.pod@nhs.net - click here for what this service offers and what information is required.
