Why I let Echo by LloydsPharmacy take the strain

When the first lockdown started in March 2020, like everyone our family had to quickly re-adjust to some new ways of living and working.

Like many people with elderly parents, we had to frequently go to their local pharmacy in Woking to get their prescriptions. With social distancing and the other problems, the pharmacy was experiencing this often took at least 30 minutes queuing and then getting the products.

Our doctor suggested using Echo as it would be much easier for us and my parents. I signed up to Echo straight after and found it to be simplicity itself. Our GP provided Echo with the list of my parent’s many prescriptions and Echo then ensures that they receive them as required on a regular basis.

A few weeks ago my father needed to change one of his prescriptions and I found that changes are easy to make.

Delivery is always prompt and I am informed by Echo via email of the deliveries, so I am able to tell my parents to look out for their next prescription.

It’s a bit like Amazon, once you start to use Echo you would not go back to constantly visiting a pharmacy to collect your families prescriptions.

Our GP recommended it and I can fully endorse it as well as a brilliant service.

If you’d love to make your life run more smoothly and get your family’s medication sorted, this free and flexible NHS prescription delivery service, Echo by LloydsPharmacy, is one step you’ll be very glad you took
