Re: Works for me...

Seems odd that your Practice is "using Pharmacy2U" as it's nothing to do with the practice, it's up to the patient to nominate a pharmacy that suits them.

It's worth doing some reading up on their business practices, might make you think twice (fined for selling patient data, misleading advertising, branded "unsafe and ineffective" by the CQC, etc), personally I wouldn't let them anywhere near my prescriptions or healthcare. There's a lot to be said about a good high street pharmacist with time to speak to and understand patient needs, much of which can't be said about a faceless online warehouse pushing out high volumes at the lowest possible cost per unit. Amazon will be next, and that'll be the end of the local high street pharmacy.
