Prescriptions - what's happening?

At our recent Forum public meetings, great concern has been expressed about the issues experienced when getting prescription medicines from local pharmacies.

How long do you have to wait between ordering and being able to collect prescriptions? 10 - 14 days? Have you had to visit other local pharmacies as yours doesn't have a particular medicine in stock? Have you tried ringing around pharmacies, but the phone wasn't answered?

Is this a common experience? Have you switched to online home delivery companies? What is your experience? Please tell us by email ( or Contact on our website

At our next public meeting at 10 am on Tuesday 19th, March 24, we will hear from Laura Robertson, NHS Sussex, about the latest situation and answer your questions on this and any other issue you'd like answers on.

To discuss this and any other issues relating to older people in our district you can attend in person at Age UK, Lavinia House, Dukes Square, Denne Road, Horsham RH12 1GZ or via Zoom. To reserve your place or ask for the joining information, please contact the Forum as above.
