Royal Mail Health
Healthcare is changing to meet the changing needs of the nation, from more consultation services in pharmacies, to wearable medical devices and more ordering of prescriptions online. As these changes take place, it is important everyone can access the healthcare they need as quickly and conveniently as possible.
Royal Mail is responding to these changes with the launch of our new division, Royal Mail Health. We’re working with healthcare experts including online pharmacies, community chemists and high street chains to deliver care to your doorstep through a range of healthcare services allowing you to access your health needs, when and where you need to.
Now you can continue to receive the expert medical advice you expect from a pharmacy with the added reassurance your healthcare needs can be brought to your door by a name you can trust and a postie you’re familiar with.
Whichever Royal Mail Health service you choose, signing up is quick and simple, managing your medication is easy and you’ll never be far from an expert when you have any questions about your healthcare needs. Your GP will still be involved with any prescription orders automatically sent to them for approval and you will even receive reminders when your next order is due so you will never run out.
Now you can simply manage your healthcare and NHS prescriptions from the comfort of your own home.
