      Unfortunately, because of the current shortage of lorry drivers, our delivery partner, Hermes, can not guarantee delivery times. We're still maintaining our delivery service but are unable to offer guaranteed next-day delivery at this time. We're very sorry about this. Thank you for understanding.

      When you order a treatment with us you can usually choose standard or next-day delivery, or collection from a pharmacy. Some treatments have to be picked up in-store, so you won’t have delivery options.

      If your treatment is being delivered, it will usually be delivered by Hermes and have to be signed for*. Test kits don’t need to be signed for and are delivered by Royal Mail.

      Find out more about our delivery and collection services and cut-off times below.

      *Important delivery info

      Signing for your order

      Medication will need to be signed for by someone aged 18 or over. If there isn't anyone in who can sign for your order, you can change your delivery date or redirect it to a local parcel shop using the courier's website or app. 

      Unfortunately, your order can't be left in a safe place or with a neighbour. The courier will try to deliver three times before they return it to us. 

      If you need your treatment urgently, we recommend using our in-store collection service. 

      Test kits don't need to be signed for, and will be posted through your letterbox.
