Wymeswold Pharmacy needs your prescriptions! We need to keep this valuable, friendly and very helpful Pharmacy in business. Please read and share locally.
Your Pharmacy - The Next Challenge
We thought that we were protected from the pharmacy funding cuts. We were wrong. The safeguards for rural pharmacies apply to those with a “standard” contract; we have a different contract.
Our funding has been cut by £16,000 this year and we face the same next year; that isn't sustainable. To get on to the standard contract we have to increase our prescriptions numbers by another 300 items a month
What can you do to help?
If you don't use us, tell us why or give us a try.
If you already use us, tell your friends/ neighbours about us
If you have prescriptions for 56 days would you consider changing to 28 days?
Talk to us about any ideas that you may have
Find out more by coming to talk to us or check our (very irregular) Facebook posts.
Some people in Wymeswold are already arranging to switch their two-monthly prescriptions to monthly, which will be a useful start. It’s obviously a bit less convenient, but not as inconvenient as having no local pharmacy!
Please see if you can help to save this valuable local resource, perhaps by doing the same.
Roger would always be willing to discuss your ideas. He has also made the following important point: "we know that there are many people who don't use our services because they think that we won't deliver. For Wymeswold, Burton, Hoton and Rempstone delivery is no problem. Wysall and Willoughby may be a bit more difficult but if it secures our future we will find a way."
Thank you so much.
