Your hospital or consultant will still have overall responsibility for your care. So if you have any concerns about your health, you should continue to contact them in the usual way. Don’t forget you should always call 999 if you are seriously ill or injured and require immediate medical attention.
The clinical team at your hospital will prescribe your medicines according to your individual needs, and this will determine the frequency of your deliveries to your home. We’ll call you to make arrangements for your first and subsequent deliveries of medicines and the necessary medical supplies such as plasters and dressings.
We take patient security and confidentiality very seriously. All of our drivers wear a uniform and they also carry photographic identification.
Not all medicines are stored the same way so check the instructions on the label or packaging. It’s important that your stock of medicines is used according to its expiry date. Each time you receive a delivery, make sure that the oldest stock is used first.
Some medicines must be kept in a refrigerator. If this applies to you, the label will read ‘please store at 2–8°C’ and you may be supplied with a fridge and a thermometer.
Medicines that do not need refrigeration should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or sources of heat such as radiators or fires.
Please contact us immediately if you think any of the equipment or products that we have supplied are faulty and we will replace them. We may need to return the faulty product to the manufacturer, so please do not throw it away. We will arrange for our driver to collect the faulty product.

The patient really is at the heart of everything we do at LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare. Whether it’s our drivers, our nurses, our patient services coordinators or our support teams in the office, we’re all committed to one common purpose – supporting patients with their treatment at home. It’s why we’ve built a truly end-to-end service and why we only use in-house teams to guarantee the levels of safety and quality expected of us. Our patients rely on us to make a positive difference. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. It’s why we are here.
We’re always looking for new ways to support you and your patients, which is why we offer a Remote Nurse Training Service. The service provides remote nurse-led training to patients for them to self-administer their medication.
