"Dad's Eyedrops"

About: Weston General Hospital

Further to my previous review:

I have just had a phone call from a pharmacy (the original one, we always use) to say they have now managed to get Dad's eyedrops (his usual ones which became unavailable for a couple of weeks).

As I said, it is not a case of giving the Ophthamlology department warning - no pharmacy knew exactly when or whether they were going to be able to obtain these drops.

(I expect calls from other pharmacies now to tell me they also have the drops in).

So, as I have had no contact from the hospital about this matter since I tried to query the new eyedrops which had been issued as a replacement, I do not really know whether to put Dad on the newly issued drops or continue with his original ones.

I will have to make my own decision and will keep Dad on his original drops.
