I'd say thats good, but more people use big companies instead of local pharmacy, it'll only end up them disappearing from our streets/high street
be aware the deliveries cannot deliver ALL types of medicine and recently another national delivery pharmacy failed to deliver meds over xmas leaving patients without meds! Your local pharmacy is very important and provides many services (like post offices dont just post letters). you will miss it when its gone. supportyourlocalpharmacy.org/
your local pharmacy probably already does this

Thank you, I did not know this. I've stopped using my local pharmacy …Thank you, I did not know this. I've stopped using my local pharmacy which is next door to my surgery as I'm fed up with him altering my prescriptions from what I order from the GP. He adjusts quantities and crosses things out. I have to have 2 epipens at a time in case one fails but he insists I only need one so I have to do a repeat script the next day, he's a law unto himself. Another reason I stopped using him is he gives out very short dated medicines, no good if you just use something occasionally.


Have you told your GP about this as he could be giving you one Epipen for example but still claiming two on the prescription?

There must be no competition. If it were me I would show them this deal & say if he doesn't wise up this would be your next move.

There is a danger if the smaller local ones disappeared. Monopoly of bigger companies, loss of jobs etc.

Quite, which is the reason that I stick with my local pharmacy even though they are disorganised and need prompting and hence, irritate the hell out of me! It would be much easier to have the stuff delivered to my door as well, but I don’t like the idea of large companies, and the NHS. Hell, it will all be done by one American giant soon!

Epipens dont have a long date on, so if they are short dated that may be why.
Cold, keep local

And a local pharmacy can give great advice when you find it difficult to get to see your doctor
We have a 5 day turnaround on repeat prescriptions at my (now very overcrowded) surgery, anyone else have the same?
As for getting an appointment, 4-6 weeks is the norm.
Rude receptionists - don't get me started.
Sorry, I just wanted to get that off my chest.
Thanks for the alert OP. However, I have little faith in superdrug delivering anything. I ordered stuff on their website recently to be delivered to one of their stores and they only delivered half of the items ordered but charged me the full cost. I called their customer service to ask why only half of my order was delivered and the customer service guy says that they had a policy of not delivering everything but that the shop should give me the rest of the stuff

The guy at the shop who gave me the click and collect order never mentioned that anything was missing and that he was supposed to give me the rest of the order from the shop shelves.

I got a refund for the missing items but there was no apology and no mention that anything was not delivered. Really poor. When I googled superdrug, the reviews were very poor for delivery.

repeat prescriptions are normally 48 hours turnaround. appointments are about 3 weeks, by which time you are either already dead and been admitted to hospital or the condition has passed. GP service is really appalling, especially in populated areas like London.

i would pay for private consultation if GP service was available on private care as that provided under NHS care is very poor and inadequate.

Same here
In my Town:
A month to see a Doctor but if you call or turn up at 8am you get to see a Doctor the same day.
Repeat prescriptions are the next day.

I had to change to a different Surgery as the Doctors were too rude and condescending.

There is a sign about being rude to staff but not the other way round.

He’s breaking the law doing this. A pharmacist cannot change what a doctor has written on a prescription.
Pharmacists are out in full force to make this look like a bad deal. I like convenience and this is convenient. I will easily move to another pharmacy if these lot mess up my prescription order. Hot Deal / Advice !!!
I've had hassle with Superdrug not getting my prescriptions but they cannot change it, only a Doctor.
Gone back to Boots. They sent it through electronically.
Any idea on how to do it for our sons (12 year old) prescription? Cant register him as he's under 16, seems pointless doing ours if we still have to do it old skool for his.
And when you need an emergency supply when you meds are not delivered on time.....where will you go......Only to your local pharmacy......who will go out of his way to help you and yet you are forcing local pharmacies to close and be dependent a monopolised large organisations.
Support your local pharmacy. You can have a one to one with them if you need advice.
Yeah as others have said if you actually *need* your medication you should avoid postal companies like this, 9/10 your local pharmacist will go out of their way to help you if there's an issue with your medication and it's possible for them to help such as supplying an emergency supply for the weekend if you loose your meds or run out unexpectedly but this is dependant on whether they can see clear regular usage and it helps to already be a customer!

If it's that bad just change your practise? I reckon we need a privatised system where people start paying per appointment.... That usually stops all the problems that we are enduring in the UK that all seem down to an overworked and understaffed NHS (not enough appointments, appointments not long enough and consequently rushed appointments etc.).
I did.
The government should stop foreign aid, overpaid mps and expenses, the royal family and put the money in the NHS.
I had phone up superdrug cs as the online registration didn't recognize my local health center, even when typing address and postcode! Guy on phone had lots of problems trying to register for me, overall spent about 30 minutes trying to register finally sorted online! Just hope it all goes through via my gp and delivery etc, apparently sd use postman to deliver, sign for at door!
