A local resident who is a Pharmacist has given the following advice: If you are unable to collect your prescription and do not have a friend or neighbour that can collect for you, you can arrange for the prescription to be sent by post, both Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy are able to send prescriptions out by post. If you have an acute condition and require urgent medication your prescription can be sent electronically to you or to someone you nominate who can collect on your behalf.
It has been suggested that the below poster or something similar could be displayed in a window to let visitors know that the household is self isolating.
