During times like these, it’s more important than ever that we help and support residents and communities, so they can stay safe, and healthy in their homes.
Everything we do is with health and wellbeing in mind. Together, with our partners across Salford, we are working hard to make sure we help as many people as possible, and assist others to keep delivering the essential services that residents and communities need.
We are coordinating and delivering a volunteer medicine delivery service, in partnership with Salford CVS, which has been commissioned by NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group.
This service provides pharmacies across Salford additional support with the delivery of medication to those who are unable to leave their homes, with no support network able to assist.
Pharmacies can contact us directly through our dedicated phone line and email address to request assistance with the collection and delivery of medication.
After receiving the requests, staff from across ForHousing and volunteers from Salford CVS then travel to pick up the prescription from the pharmacy, and safely deliver it to the patient’s home.
Because this service is in operation, we were able to assist Salford Primary Care Together SWEP (Salford Wide Extended Access Pilot) collecting and delivering medications to residents who had accessed GP services over the bank holiday weekend.
We’re proud to play a part in keeping residents of Salford healthy with access to vital supplies such as medication. Working collaboratively with care, we can make sure we make a real difference through these challenging times.
