The easy way to get your contraception
Award-winning patient care
Rated Excellent on Trustpilot
The new NHS contraception service enables you to renew your supply for the oral contraceptive pill, without needing to see your GP.
Instead, by having a telephone consultation with one of our pharmacists, if approved we can renew your prescription and dispense and deliver it to the address of your choice - making it quicker and easier to get your contraception.
How the service will work when launched
Manage your contraception the easy way with Pharmacy2U.
When you have around 4 weeks supply left, you should book a telephone appointment with our pharmacist at a time that suits you.
Have your consultation
Have your 10-15 minute call, and if everything is ok we'll dispense and process your contraception order.
We prepare & deliver it
Your contraceptive is delivered to your door.
We update your GP
We’ll inform your GP about the outcome of your call and we’ll be in touch when it’s time to renew your supply again.

How much does it cost?
This is a free service in partnership with the NHS. There’s no charge for your consultation or medication, and we cover the cost of delivery – so it’s free to you and doesn’t cost the NHS any extra.
Am I eligible for the contraception service?
To access the contraception service, you should already be prescribed an oral contraceptive by your GP or sexual health clinic. If you're taking a progesterone-only pill, you need to be aged between 18-55 or if you're taking the combined oral contraceptive pill then you need to be aged between 18-49.
You don't have to be a registered Pharmacy2U patient to use our contraceptive service.
Frequently asked questions
Worry free service
This service has taken all the worry out of ordering repeat perscriptions. They remind you when perscriptions are due & they are posted & within a couple of days they are there on your door mat. Exemplary service. Thank you.
Great service. With good liaison with my GP. And order always efficiently delivered. So much easier than queueing at the local chemist. I started using Pharmacy2U during the pandemic and no turning back.
The help line staff were excellent
The help line staff were excellent, they understood my issue straightaway, told me they would need to speak to a line manager and would get back to me. The same person got back to me later in the day with an answer, issue resolved
Great user friendly service
This is a very easy service to use.
I order my medication online from the drs it goes straight through to Pharmacy2U they confirm they have received it and it is sent out for delivery. With emails keeping me informed of its status all along the way.
I get reminders when I need to order
I get reminders when I need to order. It is easy to order and I get updates to let me know how my order is progressing. Within a very short time it is put out for delivery. It is then up to Royal Mail to post it through my letterbox.
Losing the monthly stress
Being able to request my prescription from the doctors and knowing that the items I require will be delivered to my door without delay. Originally I would go to the pharmacy after a 5 day wait to find that my prescription was not ready, so thank you for making my life easier.
Excellent service. Timely as ever. Prompted by P2U to re-order. From sending order to receipt was 7 days. Excellent as it includes GP’s approval sign off.
