Building the pharmacy of the future

We know how worrying it is when you’re not feeling well or anxious about your health. When this happens, many people turn to the internet in the hope of finding an answer. 

Unfortunately, you won’t always find the correct information online. And when it comes to the health of you or a loved one, that’s a risk you don’t want to take.

So at Rightdose, we’ve developed the best of both worlds.

A system that offers all the convenience of 21st-century technology, with the tried and trusted expertise of a trained pharmacist who knows and cares.

At Rightdose, you can ask a pharmacist – not the internet.

Pharmacy of the future

Everyone knows it’s not as easy as it used to be to get a prompt GP appointment.

The coronavirus pandemic we’ve all endured in recent months has made it even harder.

So we’ve acted to build the pharmacy of the future – an online resource where you can seek professional expert advice, and get an online prescription delivered safely and discreetly to your door.

Convenient and safe

This brings a huge benefit to those who struggle to get out and about – perhaps the hassle of attending the pharmacy is just an errand too far for people with busy lives or challenging medical conditions.

Now you can get a consultation from your armchair, and have the remedies delivered right to your door.

And don’t worry if you have concerns about how safe this process is. Everything we do is checked by our team of qualified pharmacists who have decades of experience and a real passion in making you better.

 
How does it work?

All you have to do is complete an online consultation, after which a team will assess your condition and prescribe medication which will be delivered straight to your door.

The all-important embarrassment factor

There’s no denying that many of us – especially men – get very easily embarrassed when it comes to our health and certain conditions.

This can be what stands in the way of us making an appointment with a doctor.

In some cases, the consequences of putting off a consultation are severe, and can even be fatal.

Our online pharmacy system takes the embarrassment away. But you can relax in the knowledge that the details of your condition are being examined and diagnosed in the same way they would at a GP practice.

Don’t turn to Dr Google

The temptation to enter symptoms and ailments into internet search engines is there for everyone.

But it carries huge risk too – you could very well be given bad advice and recommended the wrong medication.

That medicine may be unlicensed and dangerous.

All of these risks can be eliminated by using our online services.

The greater good

There’s a wider benefit to online pharmacies in the UK. By safely reducing the number of people seeking a GP appointment, more space is freed up for those who genuinely need to see a doctor or pharmacist face-to-face. That eases the strain on primary care and our hard-pressed NHS.

We’re still here in person too

At Rightdose we’re proud and excited about our online innovations, and can’t wait to see the positive impact it has on our valued customers.

But we also know many of our customers like coming into our community pharmacies across Scotland and chatting to our team in person.

We like that too – so please don’t hesitate to pop in and see us any time you like.
