St John Ambulance to offer a prescription delivery service for Isle of Man residents
St John Ambulance, Isle of Man has announced it is to work with pharmacists Island-wide, to provide a new prescription delivery service for those in need, as a result of the recent measures put in place, in relation to Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Volunteer Community First Responder duties have also been stepped up in readiness for any additional support the Isle of Man Ambulance Service may require, with the additional provision of a frontline ambulance when required.
From Monday 30th March, there will be a temporary freeze on scheduled ‘public’ courses. Those who have booked a place, will be able to transfer to another course, later in the year.
Lynda Osborne, Commandery Executive Officer at St John Ambulance Isle of Man said: “We recognise that we are in a fast-moving situation here on the Island, and it is imperative that we reallocate the necessary resources, to support both the vulnerable in our community and the emergency services.”
The new prescription delivery service will commence on Wednesday 1st April 2020. Anyone in need of this service should contact St John Ambulance Headquarters on (01624) 674387.
