Welcome to the Pills2u NHS Prescription Dispensing Service

Please explore the following pages for simple guidance.  For your peace of mind, we are fully registered with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and all prescriptions are dispensed by qualified dispensers and checked by registered pharmacists.

We are able to dispense any valid NHS or private prescription issued by a UK registered prescriber and deliver it to you in the comfort of your own home.   We ask that you allow up to five days for delivery, but we aim to get them to you much sooner!

There are certain items, however, which are not suitable to supply via the postal service, e.g. items that require refrigeration and certain controlled drugs.  Please check this alphabetical list to see if your item cannot be sent by post, or alternatively give us a call on 01702 200442 to talk to one of our advisers. We are also able to safely dispose of any unwanted or out of date medications that you may have.  We can ensure that they are disposed of correctly via our fully authorised health service contractor.

Please take a few moments to register your details by selecting a service below.  This will help us to give you the best service possible.  Rest assured that any personal information is held on secure servers and NEVER shared with any other outside companies.

Returns of Unwanted Medicines Service

We are authorised by our local health authority to dispose of any unwanted or out of date medications that you may have.  In all cases, please contact us by phone on 01702 200442 and speak with one of our advisers to obtain a medicines returns authorisation number.  Unauthorised returns will not be accepted under any circumstances and will be returned to sender.

Our adviser will discuss your request and send you suitable packaging materials to use and provide an address label to affix to your package.  This service is provided completely free of charge.

We are unable to accept any needles or other sharps, used or unused, nor are we able to accept returns from nursing homes.  If in doubt, please contact us on 01702 200442 or contact@pills2u.co.uk


NHS Repeat Prescription Dispensing

This service is available free-of-charge to any patient who has been given an NHS repeatable prescription by their doctor.  Your own GP will discuss whether this is suitable for your medication regime. 

A repeatable prescription is issued by your doctor as a single signed NHS prescription (known as the authorisation, RA) along with several unsigned NHS prescriptions (known as the batch issues, RD’s).

Once you have registered for this service with us, simply send us these prescriptions through the post.  The signed authorisation must be retained by us for all future dispensings and we will supply the medication against the batch issues at the intervals prescribed.  You can send us one batch issue at a time if you prefer, but it is usually much easier to send them in one go to avoid confusion. 

Seven days before your next instalment is due, we will contact you by e-mail or telephone (as you prefer) to ask if there have been any changes to your medication since the last dispensing.  If all is well, we will dispense and check the next instalment and send it to you straight away.  We will also send you a written reminder with the final instalment to allow you time to see your GP for another set of prescriptions.

You will need to send us your NHS repeatable prescriptions to the address below, but remember to complete the reverse side of each batch issue before posting.  Each prescription needs either a tick in the applicable exemption criterion (if exempt from NHS charges) or the payment amount (if not exempt from NHS charges).  They also need to be signed and dated in section C.  NHS charges will only be taken when the prescription is dispensed at the stated intervals.
