My wife used these once and the delivery took quite a while plus you ain’t given an exact date or time when they are coming so unless you stay in all day chances are you’ll miss the delivery and have to go collect it anyway which sorry of defeats the object of going the chemist.
Not available in scotland.

The service is tracked and if you miss it they will redeliver.They also quote 2-3 day delivery
I tried these and they apparently my surgery isn't on the electronic scheme, despite it having been electronic for a few years. I contacted them, they said they'd ring me back - never did. So I wouldn't use them personally....
I use these, and they pack my tablets so they fit through the letterbox.
They are not sent next day, just order with enough time
Who pays for this service? Out of the NHS budget?

Yes,My wife’s got terminal cancer and has paid her taxes for 20 years but b …Yes,My wife’s got terminal cancer and has paid her taxes for 20 years but being in her late 30s we are told she won’t she reach an age where she will draw her state pension....maybe you see her as being selfish and putting on the NHS but I’m sure you wouldn’t swap places with her!


WHAT?
I think best bet for most people would be to stick to their nearest (local) pharmacy who do deliveries, that way, if any meds are missed out, you aren't waiting another few days (potentially) to get your complete set of medication...

Yup. But it makes it easier for the customer apparently...
I collect 4400 mg morphine a month.
I wonder if they will deliver that.
This service is first class. Been using for nearly 2 years they are brilliant .

I'll do it
A sure fire way of making sure your local pharmacies close! Besides, lots of local pharmacies deliver anyway, but are nearby if there is a problem - and my prescriptions are messed up so often by the surgery, that means frequently! I now don't use the electronic system for that very reason!

I've just looked it up. Controlled drugs or those needing refrigeration can't be sent and must be collected. Surely all prescription meds should be controlled drugs? I understand what they mean by that, but surely the people who need such medicines are often, though obviously not exclusively, the same people who can't get out to collect?

I would thrust her more. Err... I mean "trust".

Lloyds Pharmacy have been doing this for a while, and my local Pharmacy has a van and delivers them free usually the same day.

You hit the nail on the head. Im a full time carer and the personI care for cant walk, So delivery is the only way.
The local chemist delivers so that helps. But when I collect, I worry that if stopped by the police with so much of a controlled substance in the car I might be if for long conversation with them.

My local pharmacy went on to this Healthera App system because they were told it's all free so they asked many regulars to install and use (it's has a repeat ordering and reminder system) and then weeks later they asked us to stop using the ordering system but could still just use the messaging system.....why because they (the pharmacy) would now have to pay to use the rest of the system.

For those with restricted mobility, for whatever reason, this and the Healthera App may help

For anyone else - a short walk to your local pharmacy will do you good (so long as your local is within a reasonable distance) and hopefully like mine they are a friendly bunch
I think Lloyds Pharmacy do free delivery, I might join with them.It looks all online, which is handy. My mum has used Pharmacy4U for a couple of years and is happy withe service. So getting fed up of queues everywhere, wasting my life away waiting for meds. One life live it ha ha.

In my experiences all the birthday cards were delivered, It's just the cash and gift vouchers inside that was missing.

??????????????????????????
They wouldn't deliver my monthly crystal meth supply, apparently a prescription by Razor Joe isn't the same as one from an NHS Doctor.

Yes but they get Free Prescriptions in Scotland. So if you are able bodied go and collect hem
