Volunteer Prescription Collections

Somerton / Deddington HC

Volunteers in Somerton are ready to support our neighbours, (who for various reasons are isolating) and our Health Centre: to reduce the number of visitors to the Surgery. To this end we have set up a collection service with Deddington Health Centre commencing from next week.

Any patient who was already part of the Deddington Health Centre delivery service will continue as normal, they do not need to switch to the volunteer delivery service.

If you usually collect your repeat prescription at Deddington Health Centre; you can still do this; but, if you are self-isolating or not wanting to leave your home, the Volunteer Somerton Cov19 support group can arrange for a volunteer to do it for you. This will be coordinated by Richard Kitson.

This is what you need to do:

1. Place your order in the usual way with Deddington Health Centre before Monday 1:00 pm. It is best if you can do this via the Patient Access (Online Services). If you can’t, leave your message on the Repeat Prescription phone line between 10:00am and 3:00pm. (01869 338847)  – If your Prescription needs to be paid for, you need to call the dispensary to do this; 01869 338862

2. At the same time call or Email Richard Kitson 07795117877 to advise him you would like your prescription collected. Make sure you give him your name and address and a contact Tel number. Richard will collect your prescription on Thursday, and deliver it to you on Thursday, in a Covid 19 safe way.
