20 years of MediService: from mail order pharmacy to Specialty Care experts

Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Europe’s first mail order pharmacy, MediService, was set up 20 years ago. At that time, the home delivery of prescription medicines to severely and chronically ill patients was a completely new concept. Today, the services offered by MediService have developed towards supporting longer-term treatment, or what we term Specialty Care.

On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, MediService held the inaugural Specialty Rx Symposium on 18 May 2017. Renowned speakers highlighted the rapid changes in the pharmaceuticals market and analysed trends in healthcare.

“Our main priority is to make everyday life easier for severely and chronically ill people. We want them to be able to access their treatment without any external help and retain as much independence as possible.”
