Medicines delivery

In addition to the outpatient hospital pharmacy, Boots will also run a new pharmacy and distribution hub for our patients.

It will include a medicine delivery service which will be available for some patients – for example, if you have virtual consultations, or if there are other reasons which mean collection from our hospital pharmacies is not appropriate.

If you meet the criteria (including if you have a virtual consultation or if there are other reasons which mean collection from our hospital pharmacies is not appropriate) you may be able to have your medicines delivered to your home, or to some local Boots pharmacies. Your healthcare staff will tell you if you are eligible for this delivery service.
