People have concerns and need more clarity regarding how to obtain their prescription medication, readers have told the Times this week.

While they are stuck indoors on lockdown, not everyone is aware prescriptions can be delivered, or that their usual pharmacy is now setting up a volunteer-led delivery scheme.

Will Bailey, 73, from Limpley Stoke near Bradford on Avon said: “We’re suppose to be self-isolating but we still need our routine supply of meds. We’re exactly the type of people the government want to be staying in.

He said his local dispensary was in the waiting room at. "You stand in a queue and we’re suppose to be social distancing.

“The pharmacy say they can’t make any arrangements, you will have to sort something. We can order meds we can’t get them.”

“There is a huge gap in the government’s planning."
