TOP TIPS - Episode 4 - Get prescriptions delivered to your door (for free).

One of top home carers and I were in a meeting with a family this week to arrange the home care.

One of the family members said that their father was having difficulty collecting prescriptions and that they took the bus to collect the medication each week.

The carer suggested getting the prescription delivered to the door which is our top tip this week.

Other than the normal prescription charge this service should be free of charge, there are various companies that offer this service such as Well.co.uk

If you need any help with this give us a call or chat on the live chat below.
