Pharmacies are extremely busy at the moment, dealing with additional requests from residents and also some may have reduced staffing levels.
The current self isolation of so many people is bringing additional problems.
We have been in contact with the below pharmacies

Boots do provide a local delivery service and this may well help many people & reduce the strain upon the shops, volunteers supporting residents around the town in this difficult time.
