As part of the Asda Online Pharmacy, patients to use click-and-collect option from any of the 232 pharmacy locations across the UK in the near future

In a recent announcement, the British supermarket chain, Asda has launched its first online prescription service becoming the first self-serving shop to offer prescribed medicine supply at the doorsteps through its latest healthcare accessibility venture.

The NHS certified online pharmacy service, Asda Online Pharmacy, is set to offer patients a digital platform designed to simplify the prescription process for patients, offering the convenience of online management and home delivery with their partnership with Pharmacy2U.

Effective immediately, new patients can register for an account on the platform via pharmacy.asda.com.

Once registered, they gain access to a seamless prescription ordering system that facilitates home delivery, along with the ability to monitor the progress of their orders.

Prescriptions submitted through Asda Online Pharmacy will undergo rigorous scrutiny by qualified pharmacists before being dispatched directly to patients’ doorsteps, all without any additional charges.

Furthermore, Asda plans to introduce a click-and-collect option, allowing customers to pick up their prescriptions from any of the retailer’s 232 pharmacy locations in the near future.

Faisal Tuddy, Head of Pharmacy and Superintendent Pharmacist at Asda Pharmacy, expressed enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our online prescription delivery service with Pharmacy2U.”

“By launching this platform, we are now able to reach even more Asda customers across the country, some of whom may not have an Asda Pharmacy nearby,” he added.

He  further emphasized the importance of providing families with easy access to their repeat prescriptions, alleviating concerns about obtaining necessary medications.

This expansion, according to Tuddy, ensures greater convenience for patients, who can now effortlessly avail themselves of these services online.

Kevin Heath, CEO of Pharmacy2U, echoed Tuddy’s sentiments, emphasizing their commitment to making healthcare accessible for all.

He expressed pride in partnering with Asda to bring their online prescription services to the retailer’s customers, recognizing the pivotal role that supermarkets play in daily life.

“At Pharmacy2U, we’re committed to making healthcare easily accessible for the whole family. We are incredibly proud to have partnered with Asda to now bring our online prescription services to a place of ease for their customers.”

Heath described the collaboration as “a natural yet exciting” progression for patients, underscoring the significance of merging convenience with essential healthcare services.
