Orders and payment 

Once an order has been placed, the transaction is processed manually at the premises of Pharmacy2U by our registered pharmacists who are members of the General Pharmaceutical Council. This website should be regarded as an invitation to treat. Any order placed by a customer is an offer to purchase, which Pharmacy2U may accept or decline in its absolute discretion without having to give a reason. A confirmation email is notification that we have received your offer on our website. A contract is deemed to be made at the point of a sale invoice being issued by Pharmacy2U following checking of orders by a pharmacist. We only deliver prescription medication within the UK. 

Payment will usually be taken by Pharmacy2U at the time that goods are dispatched (except for payments using PayPal which are debited to the customer account at the time of placing the order). Where a customer payment is subsequently rejected or returned for any reason, the customer will be responsible for providing prompt alternative means of payment. In the event of default, reasonable collection charges and/or solicitors' fees will be added to the customer's account. EU residents pay the VAT inclusive price. Non-EU/exempt residents pay the exclusive price. All NHS Prescription Services provided by Pharmacy2U are provided on a "best endeavours" basis. Requests made electronically from this website will be forwarded to your doctor as soon as possible. By placing your request, you are instructing Pharmacy2U to request and collect your prescription from your GP. In order to ensure safe receipt of any electronic prescription issued in relation to your request, we may re-confirm your pharmacy nomination before this is forwarded to your doctor. Due to the range of third-party networks and innovative technology used for this transmission, we are unable to guarantee a time of arrival of the request at your GP surgery or absolutely guarantee that it will arrive at all. You are responsible for determining and checking if this request has been received. 

Pharmacy2U will endeavour to ensure that all Prescription Only Medicines (POM) prices are correct on the website. In some cases, the prices may vary due to manufacturer price increase, product availability and/or special-order requirement. In such cases Pharmacy2U will contact you on receipt of the prescription to inform you of any price difference. We are legally only able to dispense medicines for you when we have received either an electronic prescription which has been digitally signed by a prescribing doctor or alternatively a conventional paper prescription signed in writing by a prescribing doctor. Prescriptions are issued entirely at the discretion of the prescriber.

In our continuous effort to provide comprehensive and high-quality service to our customers, we have partnered with Ostomed Healthcare Ltd (Registered in England and Wales: 01845674), a specialist pharmacy, to fulfil all home delivery orders consisting solely of appliances that fall under Part IX of the drug tariff. This collaboration ensures that our customers receive the best levels of service for these specific appliances, leveraging Ostomed’s expertise and capabilities in this area. When you place an order for such appliances through our service, the relevant prescription will be securely transferred to Ostomed Healthcare Ltd via the NHS prescription systems. Ostomed will then dispense your appliances in their professional capacity, adhering to the highest standards of care and compliance. This arrangement allows us to expand our offerings and ensures that your needs are met with the utmost efficiency and professionalism. Please be assured that the transfer of prescriptions to Ostomed Healthcare Ltd is conducted in strict accordance with NHS guidelines and data protection laws to ensure your privacy and security. 


Same-day dispatch for one-off prescriptions 

Same-day dispatch for one-off prescriptions is available if the following criteria is met: 

  1. A patient registers with us first before their GP prescribes anything 

  1. Prescriptions must be received by us from a patient's GP by 12 noon 

  1. Payment for a patient's prescription is received if the patient is not exempt by 12 noon 

  1. The prescription only includes selected medication. 

If a one-off or repeat prescription for the same patient is received within 15 mins of each other, the order will be consolidated and same-day dispatch cannot be guaranteed. 

You acknowledge that Pharmacy2U is not responsible for incidents relating to the storage, handling, manufacture, delivery, use, misuse or abuse of your medication. 

Free NHS prescriptions 

In some situations, patients are automatically entitled to free NHS prescriptions. You can check whether you’re entitled to receive free prescriptions here. 

What information do we need? 

When registering as a Pharmacy2U patient, we’ll ask whether you pay for your NHS prescriptions. If you’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions, we’ll ask the reason and if applicable when it’s due to expire. We’ll then remind you when your exemption is due to expire. 

Pharmacy2U uses the NHS’s Real Time Exemption Checking (RTEC) system to confirm your exemption status. If it cannot confirm your exemption, we’ll use the information provided on your account. 

We don’t ask for physical proof of your entitlement but it’s your responsibility to make sure the information we hold is accurate and up to date. You can do this through your online account or by contacting our Customer Care team. Read how to update us here. 

The NHS carry out checks on the exemption status of patients. Anyone found to be claiming free prescriptions falsely, could be liable for a penalty fine. By supplying accurate information, you also ensure we don’t charge you incorrectly. 

What happens when my exemption from paying NHS prescription charges expires? 

If your exemption has expired and you have not updated us with new valid details, we may begin taking payment for prescription charges if you’ve given us your payment details. Without payment details it could delay our dispensing process while we make contact with you. 

If you’ve been exempt from paying NHS prescription charges for one of the following reasons, you will need to pay for your prescriptions upon expiry. 

  • You have a maternity exemption certificate 

  • You are a child under 16 years old 

  • You are aged between 16 and 18 and are in full time education 

Any account with an expired exemption that holds valid payment details will be charged for their prescriptions. 

In other instances we’ll continue to honour your entitlement to free prescriptions, unless informed of a change in circumstances. 

Please note, without valid proof of your exemption, the NHS could issue you with a fine for making a false claim. 

You can update your details by logging in to your online account or contacting us. 

NHS prepayment certificates (PPC) 

An NHS prepayment certificate (PPC) can help patients who are prescribed multiple regular medicines save money on their prescriptions. You can learn about and purchase PPCs online here. Having a valid PPC means you’ve already paid. Therefore, we won’t charge you for NHS prescriptions during the period covered by the PPC, and your account will be classed as ‘exempt from paying prescription charges’. 

If your circumstances change, it’s still your responsibility to keep us up to date with accurate information. 

Managing other people's medication 

In principle, registration for our service must be done personally by the patient, but in certain circumstances registration can be done for or on behalf of someone else. You can register an account and order repeat prescription medicines for others online when you 

  • are the responsible parent or legal guardian for a minor, 

  • have been appointed guardian in a 'guardianship order' or 'hospital section' made under the Mental Health Act, or 

  • have explicitly been authorised to act on behalf of another or have the authority to represent someone else as their proxy and you have first obtained consent from the patient that you act as their proxy to manage their medication and for the pharmacist or pharmacist technician responsible for any order to access their NHS Summary Care Record. 

When you assist someone with the technical aspects of setting up an account and managing prescriptions, you must ensure that the patient understands the steps taken, and terms accepted and give you clear instructions to give consent at the relevant steps of the registration or ordering process. 

Promotional headlines 

Promotional headlines that mention either ‘1 Hour NHS Prescription Processing’ and/or ‘Free Next Day Delivery’ are subject to the following exclusions where: 

  • an item is out of stock 

  • a prescription requires a dossette box that separates out individual medication by date and time. 

  • medication must be frozen or refrigerated 

  • there are pharmacist queries with the prescription 

  • there is a vulnerable patient check 

Your Privacy 

Your privacy is important to us. Please see our Privacy Policy for details of what information we collect and how we will use and protect it. The information that you send to us will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy. 

You authorise us, at any time, to use any means that we consider necessary to verify your identity and creditworthiness with any third-party providers of information. 

Please note that in an emergency situation, we may need to contact a healthcare professional, social services, or the emergency services without your consent, even where you have declined any of our offers to contact your GP. In addition, the following Terms and Conditions apply to users of the NHS Prescription Service. 

Damaged items 

If your prescription medicines appear to be damaged or if the delivery appears to be wrong then please contact 0800 029 3777 or email [email protected]. We will make every effort to replace any damaged products. 

Permission to view your NHS Summary Care Record 

Your Summary Care Record (SCR) contains information from your health record such as your current prescription details, allergies and any bad reactions to medication you have had in the past. It will also include your name, address, date of birth and your unique NHS Number to help identify you correctly. In providing care to you, Pharmacy2U would like to view your Summary Care Record in order to provide the best possible care for you from the most up to date information available. Whenever your record is accessed, the details will be recorded should you wish to question this at any point in the future. You can change this permission at any point just by contacting us. You can opt-out of having an SCR altogether and you should contact your GP practice who will record this, if this is your preference.
