If you notice a mistake regarding the information we've displayed about a particular condition or medication on HealthExpress, please contact us at the following address with further details:
The medication you order will always be the genuine medicine, however like all products, the packaging may be different as we use approx. 5/6 preferred manufactures to ensure we always have stock readily available. This doesn't mean the medication isn't authentic and it will still be exactly the same.
It's worth noting that certain medications have a cheaper version. Every prescription medication has at least one active ingredient, which may be available in branded and non-branded version. They work in exactly the same way.
When buying prescription medication, a website must have the correct licenses from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to sell medications online. At HealthExpress we have been approved by both regulators.
This ensures that you will receive genuine medicine, but there are also additional factors you can check yourself when you receive the medication.
We do recommend that you inform your doctor when buying medication online so they can keep up to date with your medical health. This can be done during the consultation by ticking the relevant box.
For asthma related products, we strongly recommend you inform your doctor, and we can do this on your behalf during your consultation. This is due to new regulations regarding the amount of asthma medication that can be prescribed at one time.
If you're beginning a new treatment, you may experience some side effects. These tend to be manageable and disappear over time. If it is a continual medication you are taking and this is your experience, you can email the Customer Service Representatives and they will forward your email on to our partner doctor for his advice.
Other medications are just one dosage so side effects experienced will pass over time.
If you have any concerns regarding side effects or symptoms of an allergic reaction at any point, or have been experiencing symptoms for a long period of time, please stop taking the medication and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Unwanted medications should be taken to your local GP surgery or pharmacy for disposal.
Certain bodies should regulate authentic online doctors and pharmacies. This includes GPC and MHRA; HealthExpress has both of these licenses. All websites selling medication online should also have a compulsory online consultation that will be reviewed by a certified UK doctor. If a site doesn't have this, the medication you're buying may not be authentic.
It is illegal to purchase medication online without a prescription. Our process ensures that you only receive medication that is safe and suitable to take from the medical details you provided. This is in the form of a consultation detailing suitable questions for your condition, which is then reviewed by a certified UK doctor.
Any website which allows you to purchase medication without a prescription from an online consultation is operating illegally and taking medication ordered from such websites could put your health at risk.
A consultation is necessary and mandatory when prescribing medications. This is the case when obtaining in-person or online.
The consultation will include general medical questions such as your blood pressure, weight and current medical history. The second section is specific medical questions about the condition in question.
This consultation takes no longer than 5 minutes to complete and includes every relevant question needed to ensure you're getting the right treatment.
Unfortunately, we do not deliver to the United States of America at this time.
General medical questions and specific medical questions about that particular condition are included in the consultation. We will also ask for your personal details in terms of payment and delivery.
All questions asked are 100% necessary when prescribing prescription medications to ensure you're receiving the best possible medical care.
You must be over the age of 18 years old to buy prescription medication online. Our process for buying medication will involve an age verification process.
Buying medication on a minor's behalf is also forbidden.
As an online healthcare provider, we always confirm that you are at least 18 years of age before your first purchase. Checks are carried out against information you provide including but not limited to your name, address and date of birth on national identity registers at the time of registration and may be carried out on future occasions should there be any discrepancies in your details as time go on. To make the process as easy as possible, all checks are carried out behind the scenes as part of the registration and ordering process, requiring no action on your part. However, it is important that you provide your billing address, even if your delivery address is different, at the time of ordering.
Should we be unable to verify your age based on the details you have provided, a member of our Customer Service Representatives will contact you to discuss other options to verify your age.
You can, however our service is all-inclusive so the prescription is included in the cost.
It may be necessary to contact you if there are any problems with your order. Problems can sometimes occur with taking payment or because the doctor has some further questions about your health, having already reviewed your consultation. If we contact you by phone, it minimises any delay to your order, and is one of the quickest ways to overcome any issue.
Yes, absolutely. You can contact our Customer Service Representatives on 0207 322 9966 and they can talk through all the consultation. This can take between 5-10 minutes.
Here are some tips before calling to place your order;
You can review the consultation beforehand by clicking to order the particular treatment.
Once your consultation is complete, it will be scanned through our system. If there's an initial issue, our Customer Service Representatives will contact you. It will also be checked by a certified doctor who may ask for some additional information.
Alternatively, there could be an issue with your personal and/or payment details. Our Customer Service Representatives will look to resolve this issue over the phone; however, if you are unavailable you will be emailed as well.
If there is an issue with your consultation, this doesn't mean you will not receive your order, but we need to ensure the medication is safe for you to use. If your order is declined by the doctor, you will be told the reasons why.
This will depend on which treatments you wish to order. Certain medications may interact with each other, causing harmful side effects. If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, take another consultation and the doctor will be able to assess whether you are safe to use this medication alongside your previous order.
No, it is dangerous and wasteful to stockpile medication for further use. This is the reason why we have a set amount of package sizes for each medication.
If you have special circumstances, please contact our Customer Service Representatives for more details.
Our Auto Repeat Prescription service (ARPS) allows you to continue your treatment without interruption (between review dates set by our Doctors) via the continuous supply of your medication further to your obtaining repeat prescriptions from our Doctors. Prescriptions are Doctors' written authorisations for a patient to purchase a prescription medicine from our pharmacy.
