    HI and welcome,

    I would have thought your medication will still be delivered as usual. The pharmacy may only be open at specific times, which could be why you're unable to get hold of them. Google the pharmacy and it should tell you their opening times during the lockdown.

    Hope this helps.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @gillianpalmer123 - Your pharmacy seems to be open daily excluding Sundays. If you can't get in touch with them, you could try ringing your GP's surgery to see if they can help. I'm very sorry for the situation you find yourself in, & hope you get sorted tomorrow. Please kindly let us know how you get on.
