“The customer patient service team are so good… I get a text the day before to let me know the three-hour time slot that they will arrive in, and then another one on the day narrowing it down to two hours. I really couldn’t fault the service at all. It just means I know I am always going to have my medication available when I need it and I have one less thing to think about.”Rachel Chambers, patient.
