Superdrug has launched a new healthcare delivery service that promises to deliver medicines to customers’ doors within two hours. 

The multiple is making the delivery service available to customers this winter within a two-mile radius of nearly 300 Superdrug stores, ‘offering convenience and value for money’, it said.  

‘[The service] enables access to products to support pain relief, cough and cold products, vitamins and much more without having to leave their home,’ the multiple explained.  

The service, powered by rapid delivery specialists Stuart, will be available for orders from £5.50. 

Michael Henry, healthcare director at Superdrug, said: ‘We know that this winter especially, people are feeling apprehensive about their health and the health of loved ones and it is a priority for us to do everything we can to support them.  

‘Launching this service will offer millions of people the option of having essential healthcare products quickly delivered to their door when they most need them.’  

Superdrug previously launched a similar same-day delivery service in April 2020 to help meet the urgent needs of customers during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The community pharmacy delivery service ended in England and Wales in March, after clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) people were told that after today they will no longer need to shield from Covid-19. 

In October, Superdrug launched a pharmacy skin advice and treatment service which offers free walk-in skincare consultations, self-care advice, treatment recommendations.
