Pharmacies – general

All of Abingdon’s pharmacies offer some form of delivery service now and the AbiMeds team has produced a useful information sheet about ways in which vulnerable people can get medicines delivered to their home. This can be found here.

AbiMeds will provide a telephone advice service (Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm), advising on obtaining long-term delivery to anyone who calls in. The phone number is 01865 818351. They will also offer a limited prescription delivery service on Fridays but this will only be available to those in the government’s Clinically Extremely Vulnerable category, if they have been unable to set up prescription delivery with their pharmacy.
 

Please note: For one-off prescription needs Abingdon Community Response team will be providing general coverage through volunteers in your neighbourhood (Abingdon only). They can be contacted using the request form on www.abingdoncommunityresponse.org or via the Vale Hub on 01235 422600.
