Our Happy Customers
Our patients love the fact that they no longer have to spend time waiting at their GP and then the pharmacy to pick up their repeat medicines as Now Patient does it all for them. Here’s what a few of them say about us.
“I wanted the ease of ordering online as this is no longer a service offered by my pharmacy who now want to charge me £60 a year for delivery.”
“A lot of back and forth between the doctors and chemist even though it’s a repeat prescription. This takes away all the hassle.”
“Because of my lack of mobility you really help, not really been out for 18 months.”
“I work 8.30-5.30 it’s difficult to get my prescriptions I often run out which isn’t good for me when I need to consistently take my meds. Now Patient is far more reliable.”
“It is easier as I am unable to physically get to the doctors to order a prescription and the doctors don’t allow for over the phone repeat prescriptions.”
“It was hard for me to take time off work to get to my GP surgery to request a repeat prescription every month, this is much more convenient.”
