Post office trials prescription deliveries

Three pharmacies taking part in 12-week trial

The Isle of Man Post Office is trialling a new free prescription collection and delivery service.

Medications can be ordered online via Patient Access or by dropping a prescription slip to one of the three pharmacies taking part.

Customers at Lloyds branches at Anagh Coar, Shoprite on Victoria Road and Village Walk in Onchan will be asked if they'd like the post office to pick up their prescription and deliver it to their homes.

Most medicines can be delivered this way, with controlled drugs, cold chain medication and some dietary supplements excluded.

Government says the service is safe due to contactless delivery and tracking, as well as confidential, with only the name and address visible to postal workers.
