Latest Advice
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

Changes to our operations and service

Please bear with us and be kind to our staff. We are exceptionally busy. 

If you get your prescriptions from our Barking road (376 Barking Road E13 8HL) and Barking road (524-526 Barking Road E13 8QE) branches, the best way to order them is by our Website or App if you are able to. The email enquiry forms on the website for these two branches have been temporarily disabled due to the volume of non prescription related enquiries.

You can download our mobile app using the link https://www.newmanspharmacy.co.uk/download-our-app and register yourself and family members to request the medicines

We have had to make some changes to our operations. Please note that:

  • We are only allowing 2 patients at a time in pharmacy to keep social distancing
  • Due to huge number of deliveries we are prioritizing deliveries to patients over 70 and most vulnerable patients
  • If you are not able to come to collect your prescription please send your friends, family, neighbour or someone you know closely to collect the prescriptions. You can add the name of the person collecting for you when you order online through our Website or App.
  • When you come for prescription collection our minimum wait time is currently 15 minutes. However, will do our best to keep you waiting for as little time as possible.
  • We are still offering the sale of over the counter medicines, paracetamol tablets are available.

I’m afraid there are frequently large queues outside the pharmacies during opening hours but we are doing our best to serve every customer as quick as we can.

We are doing our best to answer the phone, but we are inundated I’m afraid.
Please bear with all our staff members as we strive to help each and every customer in best possible way and are working under incredibly stressful circumstances.

EU-wide logo to protect patients from falsified medicines

Patients in the European Union (EU) can now easily identify legally operating online medicine retailers. To help them identify trustworthy sites, an EU-wide logo will appear on the websites of online retailers that are registered in an EU Member State.

HI Weldricks has been one of the first online Pharmacies in the country to be issued with a logo which can be found at the footer of every page on our site. This logo verifies that we have been approved to sell General sale, Pharmacy only and Prescription only medicines.

When buying medicines or ordering NHS Prescriptions online, consumers must be aware that unless they buy from legally-operating online medicine suppliers, they run the risk of buying falsified medicines, which are usually ineffective, substandard and dangerous.
