Is the Coop Repeat Prescription Service any good.

7 replies 58 views
I can only contact my current pharmacy by phone and they are frequently engaged. Hence as I quite like the ethics of the Coop, and I recently saw on advert for their service, I was thinking of using them, particularly as I can place an order over the internet or use their app.  I wondered if anyone uses the Coop and how long delivery takes?

    I use the echo app , similar idea .

    Royal mail 48 hours delivery , no issues.

    Spend some time to calculate when your meds run out the first time you use the app , it then reminds you about 10 days before you run out

    Thanks, are you able to order non prescription drugs too and if so is there a delivery charge?  I seem to remember with Boots, your order has to be above £30 and I can’t remember the charge if any.

    I used to have Echo but then I needed an urgent antibiotic prescription that was not part of my normal delivery. Chaos ensued. Because of corona and me being in the vulnerable category I had to ask my GP to send it to the pharmacy attached to the surgery and then ask a neighbour to collect it for me. Echo couldn't get it to me quickly enough. Now I just have that pharmacy's delivery service for all my meds and it suits me better. 

    Also Echo used to send my meds in part deliveries which I didn't like. Perhaps it's just me but I prefer them all at the same time.

    It seems to be free but I don't think you can add extra meds that aren't on prescription.
    More info here :  https://www.coop.co.uk/health

    Once you've set it all up, you can arrange deliveries to suit.

    I use the Superdrug app.  Repeat meds ordered online are normally ready within 2 days.  When I needed an extra one off medication a couple of months ago, the surgery sent the script direct to Superdrug.  I do collect myself in store though as I don’t need them to be delivered.

    Echo has now added a "collect in Lloyds pharmacy" button .

    Delivery and collection are free
