Here's a piece of crass stupidity: I have to come for a colorectal examination. Before that happens I need to take certain drugs. The Queen's Wing will send me a prescription for these drugs but I can't walk round to my local pharmacist with it, oh no, I have to go to the pharmacy at either QEll or The Lister and get it made up there. That means using a minimum of two litres of petrol and paying your exorbitant parking fee. As a pensioner these things are important.
And what about the wholly unnecessary increase in my carbon footprint, created by unnecessary travel?
This policy demonstrates a total disregard for patient welfare. It needs changing, immediately, so that prescriptions sent out can be made up at local chemists.
