In light of the hugely beneficial impact of the Call&Check's Prescription delivery service the Government of Jersey have taken the decision to extend funding of this vital service until the end of June 2020.
The service has been well-received by all parties especially vulnerable people required to stay at home during the COVID19 pandemic and the pharmacies benefiting from being able to support their clients.
Example of comments received:
‘’Amidst the CoV-19 crisis, Call&Check swiftly and seamlessly facilitated LV Pharmacy’s medicines supply direct to patients’ homes. Thanks to the Call&Check Dispensed Medicine Delivery Service, LV Pharmacy continues to reach its patients around Jersey while simultaneously allowing everyone to support the Government of Jersey’s social distancing and ‘stay at home’ messages. The Call&Check team undertook the entire set up process allowing our pharmacy team to focus on patient care. They continue to offer their service free-of-charge at point of use to community pharmacies and, as such and most importantly, to its patients which is incredible and a perfect example of Jersey’s community spirit. We cannot thank them enough and we sincerely hope this community lifeline for healthcare continues.’’
"I must say all the feedback from our clients has been incredibly positive. Only today –Thank you, Senga. That is so kind of you. I can't express enough how grateful I am. Thank you, Julie.
"This service has been extensively used by our pharmacy with in excess of 1200 deliveries in April. We have also continued to use our own delivery service to maximum capacity for urgent, fridge and CD prescriptions. This has all been essential to assist patients in obtaining their medication whilst maintaining isolation in their own homes and has been greatly appreciated by all the patients. Without this additional facility, there would have been significant problems for this pharmacy to supply medication to patients on a timely basis. The postal/Call&Check service set up has been robust, easy to use and has a clear audit trail."
