Deliveroo adds 110 Lloyds Pharmacy stores to delivery offering

UK pharmacy and beauty chain Lloyds Pharmacy is to offer home delivery via Deliveroo at a further 110 stores nationwide. This will allow Lloyds Pharmacy customers near a total of 150 stores have their items delivered.

Lloyds Pharmacy and Deliveroo began working together in 2020. The new additions include those stores in major cities including Bristol, Nottingham, Liverpool and Exeter.

Customers can have a range of over the counter products delivered by Deliveroo in just 30 minutes. These include cold and flu relief, over the counter painkillers, and at-home pregnancy tests.

Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer UK&I, Deliveroo, said: “LloydsPharmacy has provided a vital service throughout the pandemic and ordering from Deliveroo meant people who were self-isolating could have medication delivered to their doors in as little as 30 minutes. This partnership has already helped thousands of families and households and we’re looking forward to riding to the rescue of cold, headache and sore-throat sufferers across the UK.”

Kevin Birch, Chief Retail Officer at LloydsPharmacy, said: “Pharmacies offer customers and patients healthcare advice, services, and prescriptions, but they also provide over the counter medicines for minor ailments and sickness. Although LloydsPharmacy patients can order online for next day delivery, through our extended partnership with Deliveroo, more patients across the UK can access the care supplies they need in just 30 minutes. We’re committed to improving patient care, giving them greater choice and control as to how, where, and when they access care and medicines. The extension of our partnership with Deliveroo plays an important role in that mission.
