Now more than ever we are aware of the need for people to stay safely in their homes and we at Meaghers have been helping you do just that with the introduction of our Helpline and our Nationwide prescription delivery service.
We can also dispense your medicines into convenient 7 day packs known as ‘Blister Packs’. Your tablets are divided into separate compartments, all clearly marked with the time of day. These packs help you or your carer to keep track of your medicines and ensure the right medication is taken at the right time.
Did you know your Doctor can now email your prescription directly to your pharmacy?
Getting your prescription has just become even easier than before! The Minister of Health has recently changed the prescription legislation here in Ireland, which now allows your GP to email your prescription directly to your pharmacy via ‘Healthmail’.* Healthmail is a secure clinical email system set up by the HSE which reduces the need for patients to visit GP surgeries or hospitals to collect their script.
How does it work?
Once a prescription is received from a GP, our pharmacists can in turn then dispense your medicines and contact you to arrange delivery of your prescription right to your door using our Nationwide Delivery Service.
How do I avail of the service?
If you would like to get your prescription sent directly to our pharmacy and discuss your options for delivery then please let your GP know that they may forward your prescription directly to us via Healthmail. The email address for your GP to forward prescriptions to is email@example.com
Please ask your GP to include your phone number in the email so that we can contact you when your prescription has been prepared.

It is not possible to receive a mail from outside of this network e.g. Gmail. Prescriptions sent to other e-mail addresses are not valid.
