If you decide to purchase medication from us, you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire before we can process your order. The purpose for the questionnaire is the same as going to see a medical practitioner for a consultation. We need to understand your condition, any medications you are taking, if you have other medical conditions and anything else that will help us determine if the treatment is safe and appropriate for you.
Our questionnaires are built by clinical professionals meeting best medical practices and regulations, and they are tailored to specific conditions.
Once you have submitted the questionnaire, selected your products, and we have processed your payment we will confirm receipt of the order and let you know how long it will take us to review the questionnaire.
We have not accepted your order at this stage, there is no binding contract between us for sale of the product until your questionnaire has been reviewed and you have been accepted for a suitable treatment, following which, our pharmacists will dispense the medication and dispatch it in a discreet packaging via Royal Mail or DPD in accordance with our terms below.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU
In addition to our terms of sale below, by using our website or placing an order, you confirm your agreement to the following:
- All information provided by you in the consultation questionnaire or elsewhere is correct and true, to the best of your knowledge. If you have trouble understanding the questionnaire, please get in contact with us. Do not answer the questionnaire until you are clear on the meaning of each question.
- For any medications you purchase you are also responsible to read the product’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) carefully and take the medication in accordance with those instructions.
- You agree to inform your GP about medication you have purchased from our website, and any side-effects you might experience from taking the medication.
- You confirm that you are requesting medications for your own personal use only. Medications should never be shared with any other person.

- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
- You may contact us to end the contract for a product if this leads to a delay of more than 14 days.
YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed, or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 10;
- If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods.
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
- we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 14 days; or
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind if you have unsealed our products once you’ve received them, or where the products are medicine. Nor do you have a right to change your mind in respect of services, once they have been completed.
How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives goods to cancel your contract for them. If you have taken out a subscription which involves regular delivery of goods over a set period, then you have 14 days from receipt of the first delivery of the goods. If you have purchased a service, for example a paid consultation, then you can change your mind up until we have started providing the service. If we have already started providing the services, but they aren’t complete, then you can still cancel, but you must pay for the services provided up until the time you tell us you have changed your mind.
Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract. If you have taken out a subscription, and you cancel, we will charge you for the next month’s products and send them to you and your contract will end after that date.
- Individuals and households are only permitted to take up a promotion once. Promotions cannot be used in conjunction with each other, are subject to availability and may be withdrawn or varied at any time where necessary to comply with the law, or changes to our commercial circumstances.

I hereby give notice that I withdraw from my contract for the following purchase: [INSERT ORDER ID, ITEM], ordered on [INSERT DATE].
From: [YOUR NAME]

Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract. Please get in touch with us so we can explain where to send the products. Medicines must be returned to the Pharmacy.
When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
- if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
- if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
- In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the direct costs of return (which may include our direct costs to us for collection).
How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
- We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
- The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 5-7 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
- Where you have purchased a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then, if we have not offered to collect goods, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
