Please see below a letter from the Practice Manager – Vicki Abbott at Uppingham Surgery.
Volunteer drivers required
We would firstly like to thank you for your support and dedication to both the practice and our patients over the last 4 months during these unprecedented times.
We recognise as a practice that there is a real need to support our more vulnerable or those with increased needs in our community and that this must continue regardless of when lockdown eases across the nation.
With this in mind, the practice has taken the steps to purchase a vehicle to operate a weekly prescription delivery service. We are seeking volunteer drivers to help us with providing this service. We are ideally looking for 1 day a week (11am – 3pm) from individuals with designated areas to deliver to.
If this is something you would be interested in doing please let us know.
Once again thank you for volunteering your time, it is has been invaluable to us all.
It would be good if you could let us know as soon as possible if any of you are interested, or if you are planning on ceasing your current schemes.
