Kennet & Avon Medical Partnership and COVID-19

For repeat prescriptions:

The Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership have issued an update stating that due to heavy workload, repeat presacriptions will take up to 4 working days (not the previous 48 hour service)..

Please ensure that orders are placed as soon as possible.

For further information please see the website:


Coronavirus Stay At Home Save Lives

Anyone can spread coronavirus

The only reasons to leave home are:

  • To shop for basic necessities or pick up medicine
  • To travel to work when you absolutely cannot work from home
  • To exercise once a day, alone or with members of your household



And of course, wash those hands for 20 seconds after you have been out!

Don't forget to wipe down any articles that may have been handled recently by others.

A simple wipe down solution can be made up using a diluted bleach (about 60ml bleach to 1 litre of water). This is for cleaning things only. If there is skin contact wash off with running water  immediately.

Household recycling sites open 18th May

Local household recycling sites will reopen Monday 18th May but with very restricted access and what you can deposit. Access on specific days is limited by residents' postcode, so please check what you can take and when you can take it.

The days when SN8 postcodes can visit the Marlborough HRC are not the same every week, so it is important to check.

The recycling centres are likely to be very busy for some time, so be ready for long delays.

For information on when you can go to the Wiltshire Council household recycyling site at:
