June 2020 - Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)
Please see the following update from Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)
Only order the items you need, when you need them. We can check if your medication is due to order if you are unsure.
Order when you have 7 days remaining, this prevents your medication stock-piling.
Do your medications run out on different dates? Ask us about ‘syncing’ your prescription, we can fix this for you.
