LloydsPharmacy and Deliveroo are expanding the rapid delivery service of pharmacy essentials, including cold and flu relief, painkillers and pregnancy tests, to a further 110 LloydsPharmacy stores over the coming months.
LloydsPharmacy first partnered with Deliveroo in 2020, helping to bring medical essentials to households in as little as 30 minutes. The expansion to a further 110 LloydsPharmacy stores brings the total available on Deliveroo to 150 stores across the UK. The stores newly available on Deliveroo include Bristol, Nottingham, Exeter, Liverpool, Coventry Manchester and Newport.
Carlo Mocci, chief business officer UK&I, Deliveroo, said: “LloydsPharmacy has provided a vital service throughout the pandemic and ordering from Deliveroo meant people who were self-isolating could have medication delivered to their doors in as little as 30 minutes. This partnership has already helped thousands of families and households and we’re looking forward to riding to the rescue of cold, headache and sore-throat sufferers across the UK.”
A range of LloydsPharmacy’s 50 best-selling products are available to purchase via Deliveroo’s app. Some of the items ordered most-often by Deliveroo customers include:
- Cold and flu relief
- Over-the-counter painkillers
- Sore throat lozenges
- Digestive relief
Kevin Birch, chief retail officer at LloydsPharmacy, added: “Pharmacies offer customers and patients healthcare advice, services, and prescriptions, but they also provide over the counter medicines for minor ailments and sickness. Although LloydsPharmacy patients can order online for next day delivery, through our extended partnership with Deliveroo, more patients across the UK can access the care supplies they need in just 30 minutes.
“We’re committed to improving patient care, giving them greater choice and control as to how, where, and when they access care and medicines. The extension of our partnership with Deliveroo plays an important role in that mission.”
