"Prescription service has been excellent for my needs"

About: Adult community services / Stoma prescription service

(as a service user),

- The Stoma prescription service has been excellent for my needs, one phone call order my supplies is all I have to do. Before I needed to submit my prescription to my doctors surgery (2 miles away) wait 2-3 days for it to be processed then it needed to be collected and posted to the colostomy supply company then a further 3-5 days for delivery.

- An asset to the Rotherham NHS.
