DigitalHealth.London Accelerator company, Phlo, has launched its same-day medication delivery service in Birmingham. Phlo is the UK’s first online pharmacy to offer a same-day delivery service to its patients.
Phlo is an online pharmacy service that provides an on-demand delivery service. It combines four-hour same-day delivery slots with regular updates and live tracking that provides patients with a safe and reliable online pharmacy experience. The service also provides a national mail order service, providing 24 and 48-hour delivery across the UK.
The user-friendly app aims to saves patients time in ordering and managing their medication by liaising directly with GPs and sending reminder notifications – to date, Phlo has over 14,000 registered NHS and private patients.
Following a successful crowdfunding investment of £1.65 million, Phlo has now been able to expand their same-day prescription delivery service to Birmingham, further increasing the company’s presence across pharmacies in the UK.
Nadeem Sarwar, Founder and CEO of Phlo Digital Pharmacy, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have launched Phlo’s same-day pharmacy service in Birmingham, offering patients an easier, more convenient and, above all, safe way to manage their prescriptions. Our Pharmacy is based in the heart of Birmingham employing local pharmacy staff and courier drivers. We look forward to engaging with the people of Birmingham, ensuring that our service makes their lives easier by removing the hassle and stress of managing their prescriptions.”
Jenny Thomas, Programme Director for DigitalHealth.London, commented: “Phlo Digital Pharmacy offers patients an alternative to traditional pharmacy experiences which can help to remove barriers for patients in accessing and managing their prescriptions. Following great success in London, I’m excited to see Phlo grow its service even further with the new hub in Birmingham. We are proud to support Phlo as an alumnus of our Launchpad programme and now as part of our current Accelerator cohort.”
