Ashtons is not able to deliver on Good Friday 15th April 2022 and Easter Monday 18th April 2022


Normal service will resume for all orders placed from Tuesday 19th April.

Our staff will be working closely with our couriers during the Bank Holiday period to ensure deliveries through to the Easter Bank Holidays, however national couriers experience pressure from large volumes of orders over bank holiday periods and this is currently exacerbated because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Our staff will also be available to organise emergency deliveries – if you require this service, details are outlined below.

Ordering medication over the Easter period

Please remember to identify all your medication and medical supplies requirements well in advance of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. This is vitally important to ensure you do not run out of medication.

A detailed delivery schedule for the Easter bank holidays is available, just email our Customer Services Team on

Orders you should place well in advance include:

  • Leave and discharge medication (TTOs)
  • Named Patient Supplies
  • Fridge Lines

*Saturday deliveries are only available if you have them as part of your contract

The staff at Ashtons would like to wish you and your patients a safe and happy Easter.
