  • Pharmacy2u gets new record for nominations in one week,but Pilltime lose patients

    This past week, according to stats on PharmData, p2u gained 4,383 new patient nominations, to bring them up to 152,750.

    Not sure about you guys, but thats more than the total number of nominations at the pharmacy where I work! So in terms of prescriptions, p2u has probably added the equivalent of one or two pharmacies this past week.

    Not all internet pharmacies are doing as well, though. Pilltime pharmacy, which offers patients pre-packed medication in individual plastic pouches, had a total loss of 173 patients in the past week. I have seen ads for Pilltime on Facebook but I'm not sure what other marketing they do to get new patients - have you heard of them?

    They (P2U) are advertising extensively on TV at the moment. Note ad changed slightly. Was saying "dispensed by pharmacists" now "checked by pharmacists".

      what a strange thing to have said in the first place! i haven't seen a p2u ad yet...when you say extensively advertising, do you mean that they have a heartwarming seasonal christmas ad?

          I hadn't heard about Pill time until now. Their "pouches" are more labour intensive than MDS trays, how the hell do they make any money!

            Yes as retired. We tend to watch at 4pm with a cup of tea. I like Discovery progs and do not go out a great deal.
            I cannot do gardening or much DIY these days.

            I don't watch a great deal of daytime tv and also see a lot of pharmacy2u adverts.

            Also a lot of pushdoctor advertising on tv and microadvertising on-line.

              Not keen on video games. Play computer bridge instead.
