    I get my meds delivered to me by the local Pharmacy. All I need to is phone an order, they put in the prescription request & pick it up from the surgery (all in the same building), then deliver it. As I have always been exempt from Prescription Charges there's nothing to pay whatsoever.

    Update....I asked at the pharmacy following the checkup nurse not having a clue what I was talking about.
    Anyway they had no idea either, but after looking at the letter said to enquire either by phone or email, which I did by email on the 23rd, still waiting a reply
    I had forgotten about it, so I shall try by phone next Tuesday...............if I remember.

    Not giving much confidence in the service so far though.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    As for the funding of the service - there are many different Pharmacies. Each one of them makes a set fee per item dispensed. Therefore, in order to maximise the number of items dispensed they want to encourage you to use their Pharmacy over another. After all, despite the locality of my local Pharmacy if they didn't deliver I would have difficulties in getting there to collect my prescriptions due to work hours. If they didn't provide the service I would find another one that did and my local one would lose that business - not only from myself, but from many others like me. The cost isn't much to the pharmacy. It's just one bloke who does a daily round in his car / van taking, in all, about 2 hours.
