Fenstanton Pharmacy are grateful for any PPE equipment they receive

A pharmacy in Fenstanton says it currently has no PPE equipment as it is not considered a priority for deliveries.

Paula Short, manager of Fenstanton Pharmacy said: “As we are an independent pharmacy, we were not a priority pharmacy to receive PPE equipment.

“We received a pack of 200 aprons, but between five people this has now all gone and we never received hand sanitisers.

“We are grateful that we have been told we will be receiving some PPE equipment soon from generous people within the community.”
