How Pharmacy2U worksPosted on: 12 November 2018 by 50connect Promotions
There are many ways you can benefit from using an online repeat prescription service like Pharmacy2U and convenience is just one of them.
The way we use digital technology has altered our expectation level when it comes to home delivery and that is driving huge change in how we use our GP, access healthcare and request repeat prescriptions. If you or someone you care for uses the same medicines regularly, you can take advantage of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) and have prescription medication delivered to your doorstep.
A new breed of health service providers, such as Pharmacy2U, are cutting through the fuss and inconvenience of organising repeat prescriptions to provide a simple free home delivery and reminder service that can be set up in less than five minutes. As such you can be sure that your medication will be at your door in the quantity you need at the time you need – without you having to do anything other than a simple initial registration.
What do you gain from an online NHS repeat prescription service?
Pharmacy2U specialises in the home delivery of medicines, our service is made up of qualified pharmacists, dispensing technicians and a friendly customer services team, dedicated to making repeat prescriptions easier for patients. You can manage your medication through our app or online and you can call our friendly customer care team with any concerns or queries you have.
Pharmacy2U’s growing patient community reaches more than 270,000 people, helping them with their repeat prescriptions.
Handling your repeat prescriptions in this way, you have complete peace of mind. You can see what medications are on your prescription, and you can see when they’re going to be dispatched. You can keep up to date by logging into your online account – and if you’re going to be away for a few days, you can even nominate a neighbour to have your prescription delivered to.
If you are someone who works night shifts or has a work pattern that sometimes gets in the way of arranging a repeat prescription through standard surgery hours, you’ll find the flexibility of an online service a real bonus. You can log on any time day or night and update/request a prescription.
Perhaps the biggest convenience is the ability to have online NHS repeat prescription delivered to your door - for free. Without the overheads associated with having high street pharmacies, Pharmacy2U can pass on those savings.
89% of people who use the Pharmacy2U NHS repeat prescription service say the service is more convenient than using their local pharmacy.
What are the benefits of the online NHS repeat prescription?
In short, everyone benefits. For you as a patient, you’ll find them convenient, flexible and easy to manage and keep track of.
For elderly, disabled and those with limited mobility managing repeat prescriptions online through a service such as Pharmacy2U can be extremely useful. They’re free, convenient, easy, and require minimal waiting time. They can be renewed manually – but for the most part, the service will handle everything – even sending reminders to you when your next prescription is due.
