The Development of the Pharmacy

The first known pharmacy existed in Baghdad in 754, but they didn’t make their way over to Europe until the 12th Century. Of course, pharmacies are we know them now are very different to the way they were back then, and are continuing to develop. Since the start of the 21st Century, a number of online chemists have appeared across the world. Many are actually part of the local chemist, offering an extra service and now over 2 million people in the UK buy their medicines this way.

Accessing your pharmacy online holds a great number of benefits. For those who are housebound, or who simply cannot get to a pharmacy during opening hours because they work or live too far away, they can access products to meet all their medicinal needs at the click of a button. Online chemists also offer privacy, so no one need see or hear you pick up your medication or personal products.

Morningside Pharmacy is a registered UK pharmacy which has made ordering your prescription or repeat prescriptions really easy and convenient online. Customers can also purchase a range of other health products, such as vitamins and supplements and family planning products or stop smoking aids such as nicotine patches and sprays.

How do online prescriptions work?

Patients complete a confidential, online questionnaire which is forwarded to a registered GP or prescribing healthcare professional at Medescribe (MPS). A GP or prescribing healthcare professional will determine if treatment is suitable and an electronic prescription will then be sent to Morningside Pharmacy for dispensing. If treatment is not recommended, the patient will be contacted by a health professional and advised appropriately.
