FREE Standard Delivery (Royal Mail)
Royal Mail aim to deliver your package within 3-5 working days once your order has been placed, and may also deliver on Saturdays.
Royal Mail will send you an email (and a text if you’ve opted in) on the day of delivery with your order tracking number and the expected time of delivery. All parcels require a signature before they can be delivered, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your treatments reach you if someone else takes the delivery for you.
If you are not home when your package arrives, Royal Mail will leave a red calling card. This will detail the post office in which your package will be held. You can then either pick up your package at the indicated post office or use the Royal Mail website to rearrange your delivery.
Free Standard Delivery is the perfect choice if you can wait a few days and don’t want to pay any delivery costs.

Complete your questionnaire. You’ll be taken to a confidential medical questionnaire. The questions vary for specific treatments but will always ask you about your health history and any medicines you take. Expect questions about symptoms, the nature of your condition, and possibly about your lifestyle too.
Our clinicians use this information to ensure that the treatment you’re prescribed is safe and suitable for you to take.
Select your delivery option – some treatments are available for only collection, or only delivery.
Log in or register for an account if you’re new to the service. You can then pay for your treatment – on your statement, the transaction will be ‘Lloyds Online’.
