Went to the chemist today to order my usual prescription.

Are you over 80 I was asked. not yet I replied. ok you have to go down to your doctors surgery and order it from there now.

The surgery is over a mile away the local chemist about 400 yards away.

I said to the receptionist at the doctors, I know it is not your fault but what idiot thinks it is a good idea to have pensioners over the age of 70 years old have to go to the doctors in the middle of winter to get a prescription.

I said just when you think this surgery could not get any worse they do this.

Ok today was not to bad. But think what it would be like if it was snow or ice outside.

Is this just a northamptonshire thing or is all over the UK.

We get repeat prescriptions sent by email from the doctor to our local chemist. The doctors surgery is ina health centre about a mile away. The chemist is nearer. We have a User ID and pass word to access our own file to re-order. It shows the list of items and we tick which ones we want. Had a phone call from one of the doctors as I am taking aspirin. It is being changed as I have been taking them for several years. It is a good surgery and a good chemist. The main chemist is the son of the original owner.
