An easier way to manage your NHS repeat prescriptions
Pharmacy2U help over 300,000 patients manage their NHS repeat prescriptions, from request right through to delivery
Founded in 1999, their UK-based pharmacists, dispensing specialists and customer care team are dedicated to improving the lives of patients by harnessing the power of technology.
With their free service, you can easily order online, via mobile app or over the phone – all from the comfort of your own home. This helps you avoid any unnecessary trips to the GP’s surgery or pharmacy.
Built to particularly help those people with a long-term condition, this refreshingly clear approach is perfectly suited to help those with:
- Busy lifestyles or a desire to spend less time collecting prescriptions
- Restricted mobility
- Limited access to a high street pharmacy
Delivery is always free and you don’t need to be stuck at home waiting for your medication.
You can choose free, flexible and safe delivery to your home, work or even to a neighbour – whatever suits you best. They even deliver refrigerated medication and controlled drugs – which for safety need to be signed for.
Here’s how their service works:
- Tell them what medication you need and when it’s required
- They check the prescription with your GP
- They dispense your medication from their award-winning facility
- Your medication is delivered, for free
They’ll even give handy reminders when it’s time to place your next order.
A hit with patients
It’s a service which is clearly working for patients of all ages as Pharmacy2U are rated ‘excellent’ on Trustpilot, with over 100,000 verified patient reviews.
Michelle Francis, one of their 300,000 patients says, “we use the app to order our medication, which takes seconds. Everything is less stressful as we can get our medication delivered.”
A safe and secure service
Their pharmacists work closely with your GP to ensure seamless care throughout the whole process. Once you’ve nominated Pharmacy2U as your chosen Pharmacy, your GP will then be able to electronically send them prescription details using the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) – a safe, secure, NHS system which Pharmacy2U helped pioneer.
Like all pharmacies, they’re regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). They will only process NHS repeat prescriptions approved by your GP who will also still conduct any health checks relevant to your condition.
For your safety, controlled drugs and refrigerated items like insulin will require a signature on delivery.
