Pandemic delivery service extended until September 30
The pandemic delivery service from pharmacies in England has been extended until September 30 for people who have been told to self-isolate by NHS test-and-trace.
The PSNC said pharmacies, with the exception of distance-selling pharmacies, that are commissioned to provide the service must ensure those people receive prescription medicines and appliances at their homes within the 10 days they are isolating.
Only people who can provide their NHS test-and-trace account ID can access the service.
“A record of the NHS test-and-trace account ID reference number must be made and retained as part of the contractor’s delivery record,” the PSNC said.
The PSNC added that contractors should not put forward claims for the delivery service for clinically extremely vulnerable patients which finished on March 31.
