Pandemic delivery service extended amid more Covid restrictions
The pandemic delivery service has been rolled out to more areas of England following the government's decision to extend its tier four restrictions across the country.
The list of new tier four areas that will benefit from the service, which runs until 11.59pm on February 1 for clinically extremely vulnerable people (CEV), includes Leicester City, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Derby and Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, Birmingham and Black Country, Coventry, Solihull, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent and Lancashire.
It will also run in Cheshire and Warrington, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Tees Valley, the North East, Gloucestershire, Somerset Council, Swindon, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, the Isle of Wight and New Forest.
The PSNC said the terms of service requirements apply to all contractors except distance selling pharmacies but that “as the only CEV patients that are eligible for support with deliveries are those living in the tier four areas, only contractors located within those areas are likely to provide services to eligible patients on a regular basis".
