I al­ways sign for pre­scrip­tions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your - BRENDA SHAW Or­ton Longueville, Peter­bor­ough

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.
