Faster is better

We’ve partnered with Pharmacy2U for same-day deliveries of medicine

We’ve launched a same-day delivery service with Pharmacy2U, demonstrating our ambitions to grow, writes Paul Smith.

In this video, watch chief commercial officer, Nick Landon, and Pharmacy2U’s chief superintendent Phil Day discuss our partnership, which aims to give customers a speedy, convenient and secure way to order and receive medicine from the comfort of their own home.

Nick says: ‘This is only the start. We want to grow this into a nationwide service and then expand that service to offer same-day distribution for all sorts of items through our network. That’s our ambition. Faster is better, faster means we win more traffic from the competition, faster means we can grow our business more. That’s what our aim is.’

The same-day items will be for some Pharmacy2U medication and healthcare products – initially via the Chemist Direct brand – following a surge in demand during the pandemic. It will initially focus on some postcode areas in Yorkshire, which is where the company is based.

We spoke to Pharmacy2U CEO Mark Livingstone as part of our Analysts’ Presentation on 20 May. Catch up on that film, here.
