Posted on May 12 2020 by Elizabeth Chamberlain


Following the prime minister’s speech on Sunday evening, the government has published Our plan to rebuild: the UK government’s covid-19 recovery strategy.

Pharmacy Support in Cheadle

During the current pandemic, the demand on local pharmacies has been huge, particularly in the early days. Recognising this, Staffordshire County Council asked Support Staffordshire to identify local voluntary and community groups which would be able to help out specific pharmacies where they needed volunteers to take medication to people’s homes or to help support people queueing outside their shops.
