Article in The Northern Echo regarding Wolsingham Pharmacy.
Please be aware that no one from the practice has been asked to speak to or has spoken to The Northern Echo. The director of pharmacy has unfortunately had to respond to the article with the below comments
“I am the director of this pharmacy and have attempted to get in touch with this newspaper to ensure the facts of the matter are correct. This article is very much built on rubbish. We will NEVER refuse to accept a repeat prescription. We have worked in partnership with our GP surgery colleagues to ensure all patient requests are fully met without delay. I am very frustrated that we had not been approached by the news paper for comment. This article brings unnecessary stress in all involved and I am particularly concerned that the facts in this article are incorrect. We offer to deliver to patients finding it difficult to access the pharmacy, we never refuse to supply a prescription for our patients and we are working very closely with our GP partners to ensure our service is safe, robust and most of all available for our community. Should any patients have any concerns please contact me on 07736131981. Many thanks Ross Hepplewhite. Director of pharmacy.”The Weardale Practice works closely with our colleagues in the Wolsingham Pharmacy to support them to provide medication for our patients in a safe and timely manner. Thank you Director of pharmacy.”
