I always sign for prescriptions
REGARDS the letter headlined “prescriptions must be signed for” in The Evening Telegraph on June 18, which referred to prescription drugs being posted through the wrong people’s letterboxes.
I have mine delivered every month by West Town Chemist in Peterborough, and I must say that at no time would my prescription be pushed through my letterbox.
And neither would I be left with a neighbour’s. The driver always takes time to come back when someone is in.
I have always had to sign for mine for a long time now.
I thought this would be a code of practice with all chemists.
I really can’t believe these peo- ple are so irresponsible to allow prescriptions to be pushed through doors.
I really do think those chemists that do this need to be checked out – sooner rather than later – before we hear that something dreadful has happened to either small children or the elderly.
