What happens to my medicines if I am not at home?
We will attempt to deliver your medicines on two occasions, usually on consecutive days (excluding Sundays), unless contact is made with the pharmacy and a different delivery day is requested. After two attempts we will keep your medicines in the pharmacy. Patients can collect their medicines once the driver comes back from the delivery round.
