A number of our volunteers are now working very hard, with a good, safe work-flow in place delivering prescriptions throughout Gainford and Langton, and further out to include Ingleton, Winston, Caldwell, Eppleby and all surrounding areas covered by Gainford Surgery.
Originally contacted only on Friday 27th March by the chair of the Patient Participation Group, the group was formed and communications channels set up to make the best use of digital apps including Whats App. Staff at the surgery wanted to minimise the number of people visiting the surgery. They asked that a small group of volunteers get involved and as the surgery closed on Wednesday 1 April, the wonderful volunteers had delivered 94 prescriptions.
Please note that all patients should contact the surgery, not the volunteers! The surgery will liaise with the co-coordinator of the group and prescriptions can then be safely delivered to the doorsteps of our most vulnerable neighbours. If you are struggling please contact the surgery.
Working together for our community. Stay safe, safe lives, stay home.
