COVID-19 URGENT ADVISORY NOTICE

24th March 2020


Given unprecedented demand on pharmacies, for the safety of your team and patients, the next days will require pharmacy teams to strictly prioritise all pharmacy activities. You should consider:

  • Reducing opening hours or temporarily closing the doors for a period of time each day to give staff a break from patient-facing demand
  • Only processing URGENT prescriptions (non-urgent prescriptions can be delivered later)
  • Deferring non-urgent services and products
  • Postponing vaccinations till a later date (e.g. set up a booking system)
