Visiting your GP is often a necessity, yet many haven’t managed to access the help they need during this year’s crisis. Research from Co-op Health reveals that during the pandemic a huge volume of UK adults have delayed booking GP appointments. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing these findings with the help of a popular TV medic.

Staying safe and well with free home delivery 

Introduced with an ambition to shake-up the traditional repeat prescription market, Co-op Health’s app is a bit like having a pharmacy in your pocket, allowing you to view and order repeat medicines in an instant. 

With a secure NHS connection to your GP’s system, you can choose to have your prescription dispensed by the pharmacy at our Lea Green depot before it’s sent for free to your home, place of work or local Co-op Food store with a Post Office. Or, if you prefer, you can simply have it delivered to a pharmacy of your choice.

And today, we’re debuting Co-op Health’s very first TV ad to encourage people to use the convenient home delivery service to avoid running out of the medicine they need to stay well.
