Why use Prescriptions.co.uk?
In 2016, the UK reached its highest population level ever at 65.6 million and is projected to reach 74 million by 2039.
Our population is also living longer thanks to improved healthcare and medicines. This growth is putting pressure on our NHS services and resources. Government cuts to public services, which include pharmacy, along with mobility issues faced by many UK citizens make it increasingly difficult to access the services they need regularly and sometimes urgently.
