Boots and Lloyds have started charging for their delivery service but everyone else has kept it free. Certain patients will be protected from this but that is down to the discretion of each company.
There is also a scam where scammers are contacting patients directly to tell them the government and local pharmacies have now started charging for prescription deliveries and they are taking payments over the phone. Pharmacies will never contact patients in this way so patients should be warned not to give out any payment information if they receive this message.
There is an national volunteers service that patients can call if they have problems collecting prescriptions. This is not available same day but can be useful if a patient is not in too much of a rush. The number for that is 08081963646
