About The Independent Pharmacy

The Independent Pharmacy was established in 2013 by pharmacists Andy Boysan and Scott McDougall. They wanted to use technology to increase patients' access to reliable sources of medicines and advice, safe in the knowledge that they'll be dealing only with qualified UK pharmacists & doctors. 

We had the idea of creating an accessible, user-friendly online pharmacy that was entirely focused towards the customer. In 2013 they realised that idea and created The Independent Pharmacy.

The Independent Pharmacy provides a safe, personal online healthcare service. You can receive confidential health consultations with a UK doctor and receive your prescription from the comfort of your own home.

As well as offering a range of over-the-counter and prescription medicines, we also provide expert advice on a range of common health issues, including eczemamigraineacneerectile dysfunctionhair lossrosacea and many more.

Our initial assessment doesn't require you to come in or visit anyone, it's just an online questionnaire so that one of our prescribers can assess the current state of your health, as well as your medical history and any other relevant information. This is no different to the questions that you would be asked if you went to visit your GP in person.
