Pandemic boost: Pharmacy2U's online product delivery climbs to 17m

Pharmacy2U has delivered over 17m medicines since the start of the pandemic, figures from the Leeds-based online pharmacy showed today.

The e-pharmacy, well-known for its repeat prescriptions service, has seen a sharp increase in customers ordering medicines online.

The company has grown its operations to support the work of the NHS and adapt to stay-at-home measures.

It has been providing delivery services for free since the first lockdown and says they have saved around seven million unnecessary trips outside for vulnerable people.

Based on automation of the ordering, dispensing and distribution steps, the structure delivers millions of medicines to the doors of 600,000 people every month.

Pharmacy2U has also contributed to the rollout of more than 620,000 coronavirus jabs across 25 sites including venues such as Odeon Cinemas, Morrisons and Village Hotels.

The company will continue to work with the NHS in the upcoming common flu vaccination campaign.
