Ratings and Reviews
Was Great App.
Used to be an excellent app... Now notifications don’t work.
Does not alert you when items prescription orders are received or are ready to collect.... notifications don’t work.
Just needs some tweaks
As a pharmacist who uses this system, I feel a few changes are needed to improve the experience for both the pharmacy and patient. When ordering the medication a “collection” or “delivery” button would be useful.
From a pharmacy side of things, being able to manage the alerts would be helpful. The new request and new registration alerts are absolutely necessary but the alerts after that are not needed and become annoying.
Overall a good app but these changes would be welcome.
Works really well and cuts out a lot of hassle for repeats
Using the app cuts out an entire extra trip to get the repeats signed and it works really quickly- it can be ready in a day. Gives updates as well that are useful that otherwise you wouldn’t get so no wasted trips too.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
