Persons seeking medical attention at the Chapelton Community Hospital in North Central Clarendon will temporarily face some amount of inconvenience, as services at the facility will be relocated to the Summerfield Community Centre in the neighbouring district, also in Clarendon, effective Monday, April 1.

“Pharmacy services will be provided on a drop-off and pick-up basis for patients seen at the health centre,” the health ministry has indicated.

Prescriptions will be collected from patients on Mondays and delivered on Tuesdays, and also collected on Wednesdays and delivered on Thursdays.
