A range of services can be delivered directly to you in your own home. Some of these, such as online shopping, may be provided by private companies whilst others such as Meals on Wheels are provided to eligible recipients through charities or private companies often commissioned by local authorities. The Meals on Wheels service is provided both as a government supported service and by the RVS.

In some areas pharmacies deliver medication to patient’s homes on request however this varies from pharmacy to pharmacy and also from local authority to local authority.
