myGP App puts patients’ choice first

Better patient outcomes are the driver for every innovation launched by iPLATO, the operator of myGP App, and those positive outcomes remain the measure of their success.

200,000 patients every month already benefit from the convenience of using the myGP App to order their repeat prescription. They welcomed the myGP ‘click and collect’ service that enabled them to nominate any community pharmacy for prescription medications’ collection. They embraced the provision of a high quality home delivery service from LloydsDirect.

Now, iPLATO is delighted to announce the addition of a second delivery option for patients as we welcome Pharmacy2U to our platform.

It’s clear that easy and timely access to vital medication improves health outcomes. This new delivery addition to the myGP service means greater choice and is good news for patients and practitioners alike.

myGP is already the number one smartphone destination for people with NHS repeat prescriptions. With many patients also using the medication reminder, health tracking and adherence history tools, the extra choice and convenience of the Pharmacy2U delivery option will add to its considerable appeal.

Good patient access and adherence to prescription medication are important in achieving better health outcomesIt is great to see innovators such as myGP who focus on improving patient experiences and providing patient access to medicines in primary care. The efficiency and safety improvement in managing prescriptions digitally makes the myGP app a good choice for patients.
