Lazy people, rejoice.
You can now see your doctor and get that refill prescription all from the comfort of your own bed.
McCabes Pharmacy has announced their agreement with VideoDoc, a company who deliver diagnosis and a prescription to patients at home and we're pretty excited about it.

VideoDoc is an online doctor service and each one is registered with the Irish Medical Council and has received remote services training so it's all legit.
They are available for consultations online via the videodoc.ie website or through the videoDoc app.
So, where does McCabes come in all of this?
Basically, if you can't get to the pharmacy to collect your medicine, videoDoc can send the prescription to McCabes Pharmacy who in turn will deliver the medication to the individual’s location of choice.
They offer the same day delivery in Dublin and a next day delivery service for anywhere else in Ireland.
