Who Regulates Us?
registered pharmacy
The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the regulatory body for pharmacies and pharmacy staff in Great Britain. You can find our registration details on every page of our site, as well as individual registrations for our pharmacy staff on their team pages. These show that we’ve met the standards expected by the GPhC and passed their regular inspections for professionalism, quality, and safety.

We’re a proud provider of NHS services, fulfilling NHS prescriptions from our pharmacy and getting them out to our patients as quickly as possible. Our electronic prescription service works with NHS systems so you can order your repeat medications from your GP and get them delivered to an address of your choosing within 48-hours of us receiving your prescription.
LegitScript approved

Who Can We Provide Treatment To?

who can we treatment provide to

We can provide over the counter and off the shelf medications to patients aged 16 and over, and our clinic can prescribe medications to adults aged 18 and over.

We deliver throughout the UK, and this goes for products from our store, repeat prescriptions, and prescribed medications from our clinic.

When you want to obtain either an over the counter or prescription medication, you’ll enter into a short online consultation with our healthcare team, usually one of our pharmacists or prescribers.

You’ll need to answer some quick questions which will help our professionals get a better idea about the state of your health and any conditions you may be suffering from.

This process is completely private and confidential, just as it would be when you consult with your local pharmacist or GP, and your answers are only used so our team can help you make the best possible healthcare choices.

who can we treatment provide to

If our team decide that the medication you would prefer is not suitable for you for any reason they will let you know and suggest some alternative treatments that will be a better fit for you and may be more effective at treating your condition.

At the end of the day, your health comes first, and our team will never provide any medications that they don’t believe will be right for you.

In order to get this right, our team may sometimes ask you to provide some extra information, such as a valid form of identification, before they’ll finalise your order. Naturally, this extra information will be treated with the same care and confidentiality as the rest of your online consultation.

Due to the nature of our online business, we are unfortunately unable to provide assistance to patients who are in need of immediate medical care. In these cases, you may need to contact your local healthcare services, such as your local walk-in centre or A&E department.

If our team think you would benefit from in-person or urgent care, we will let you know what they believe you should do next, based on the information you have given us.

Sometimes, you just need a face-to-face consultation with a medical professional and our team are more than happy to advise that you use your local services if you need to.
