I'm on Methotrexate and prednisalone ATM. Two questions : Can I get my medication delivered ?
And am I qualified to receive food parcels ?
I'm interested to hear from anyone my situation.

    Hello @Peter928   Pleased to meet you.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Please can I suggest contact your Surgery..

    Patients Access is a system which you can apply for your prescription.  To be delivered by your local Pharmacy.

    The Surgery you have should have its own website.

    Which is useful book appointments apply medication, prescriptions and anything else you need to know well being health.

    There are prescription services companies on line if your Surgery has not got a website. Look on line these offer a service through your mobile Phone and it gets sent to you by Post.

    As food parcels you have to be qualified to be vulnerable.  There is a link here please have a look.

    Please if you experiencing accessing food if you have not already see apply on line to any supermarket in your area.

    There are delivery slots available but is matter of applying to each supermarket being patient, tolerant .

    I applied for delivery TESCO had to get up early 5am slots open . OCADO late night early morning.

    Please if you are experiencing other problems need community support.
