South Uist Medical Practice has issued a reminder about its medication delivery service.

Patients are asked to give dispensary staff two working days’ notice to prepare prescriptions.

Deliveries going south are normally delivered on Tuesdays, while northbound prescriptions hit the road on Thursdays.

In an online plea, Dr Bird said: “Giving the dispensary staff two working days to prepare prescriptions makes all the difference. Queries can be discussed, medication shortages can be adapted or responded to and unhurried preparation can ensure accuracy. 

“So, for Tuesday deliveries, please order on the previous Friday or before. And for Thursday deliveries, please order on the previous Tuesday or before.”
