To All Horizon Healthcare Patients

Polite Notice

We are NOT issuing medication early or issuing extra supplies as this will put the pharmacy supply chain under unnecessary additional pressure at a time when they are already working up at full capacity to ensure that patients have essential medications on time, as well as delivering to our most vulnerable patients who are self isolating for 12 weeks.

We are aware that there have been reports on Social Media about some patients with Long Term Conditions requesting medications, in anticipation of becoming unwell, which included antibiotics. We will NOT be issuing ‘rescue packs’ for people who have not been advised to have these previously, or medication which has not been required in longer than 6 months.
