More services to receive medicines issued by doctors at convenience stores
There is an increasing number of services that allow you to receive medicines given by doctors at convenience stores 24 hours a day, without having to go to the pharmacy after going to the hospital.
FamilyMart has been offering this service since May at about 2000 stores in Tokyo.
The person receiving the medicine listens to the explanation of the medicine from the pharmacist at the pharmacy on the Internet.
And decide at which store you will receive it
When it’s early, the medicine will arrive at the store the next day.
Seven-Eleven Japan is experimenting with a service to receive medicines at a locker in a store in Kawasaki City.
Since the spread of the new coronavirus, pharmacists’ explanations have improved over the phone and the Internet, so this service started.
Convenience companies believe that more and more people will continue to use the service at homes and convenience stores near the office.
