Medical Assistance

You should contact the surgery first to request the medicine and explain that you will need to have them collected, after which you should contact your zone or sub-zone leader (by email, SMS, or phone) to request help with collection of prescriptions.  Email or SMS are preferable to reduce errors and avoid problems with lines being engaged.
