Christmas and New Year Deliveries 2021

Christmas and New Year Deliveries 2021

Ashtons is not able to deliver on the Christmas and New Year Bank Holidays

Our staff will be working closely with our couriers during the Bank Holiday period to ensure deliveries throughout, however national couriers experience pressure from large volumes of orders over the Christmas period and this is currently exacerbated because of the COVID-19 pandemic and driver shortages.

Remember to identify all of your medication and medical supplies requirements well in advance of the Christmas and New Year period. Leaving orders to the last minute may increase the risk of not getting the delivery in time. Increase your stock to ensure you do not run out of medication.

Orders you should place well in advance include:

  • Fridge Lines
  • Leave and discharge medication (TTOs)
  • Named patient supplies

Last order dates

Please place all orders by Wednesday 22nd December in order to ensure delivery before Christmas. After Christmas, your next delivery will be on Thursday 30th December.

A detailed delivery schedule for Christmas and New Year is available, just email our Customer Services Team on
