Lloydspharmacy has become the first major retailer to sell the swine flu drug Tamiflu online.
From today it will be possible to buy Tamiflu via its online doctor service http://www.lloydspharmacy.com.
Packs of ten will sell at £48.50, which is less than half the price of some other online sources, it said.
Lloydspharmacy governance and pharmacy relations director Andy Murdock said: We have decided to become the first recognised healthcare brand to sell Tamiflu online in advance of need so that people who want to buy the treatment can get it from a reputable online source.
Murdock added that information would be sent out with the drugs from doctors explaining swine flu symptoms and under what circumstances they should start taking it.
