Frequently asked questions
 

If you aren’t able to find the answers to any questions you may have, or you require more information, please contact us at customerservices@ukmeds4u.com.

Q. How old do I need to be to have an e-consultation?

A. You must be at least 18 years old.

Q. Why aren’t your prices immediately visible?

A. In order to comply with UK laws, information about prescription medication, including prices, is only available once you have completed your e-consultation. Once you have completed this then you will then have direct access to this information. We will also provide this information if a direct request is made.

Q. Why are some internet sites selling this prescription medication at such low prices?

A. If these prices are dramatically lower than ours, then they probably are not supplying genuinely licensed and branded pharmaceutical products. You will therefore have no way of knowing exactly how or where their products have been manufactured, or what chemicals they might contain. Whatever the case, you will be taking a chance with your health, or maybe even your life, by using these questionable products.

Q. Are your doctors and pharmaceutical suppliers reputable?

A. Yes. All of our licensed UK doctors are registered with, and regulated by, the General Medical Council and are authorised to write prescriptions for the medications we supply. The UK licensed and regulated pharmaceutical supplier that dispenses the medications for us is a registered member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and is also a registered supplier to the NHS in the UK. All parties involved in the process have to comply with the strict standards of operation and codes of ethics as well as UK government regulations and laws. This is to ensure that we only supply genuine branded medication from a regulated UK source and that only those who are suitable for the prescribed medicine will actually receive the goods.

Q. How will I know that the medication you supply is genuine?

A. All medicine which is supplied by us is dispensed by a UK licensed and regulated pharmacy which is monitored by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA.

Q. Do I need a prescription to obtain medicine from you?

A. Yes. In the UK it is illegal to offer prescription medication for sale without a prescription. If a company is operating in this way it is either operating illegally or is based outside the UK. We require that all our patients have an online consultation with one of our doctors so that they can diagnose the condition and provide the correct prescription for your particular problem.

Q. Do I need to have another e-consultation for a repeat prescription?

A. No. Once you have had an initial e-consultation, and you are approved for treatment, you will be able to request a repeat prescription. At the time you will have the opportunity to review and update your delivery details and medical information if anything has changed.

Q. Should I consult with my own doctor about my treatments through you?

A. Yes. We would always advise you to consult your own doctor before starting any courses of medication. If at any stage of the e-consultation you have any questions relating to your health we would advise you to consult with your own doctor as they will be more familiar with your personal medical history. We will be able to provide you with a letter and information to give your doctor which will accompany your order. We advise you to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, which are contained in the packaging of each product, completely and carefully. We will not accept any liability for the abuse of any medication purchased through us.

Q. Will you divulge my medical information or other details to anyone else?

A. The information from your e-consultation will be used by one of our doctors in order to make a diagnosis and write a prescription, pending suitability. If any medication is prescribed then your prescription will be given to our pharmaceutical supplier in order to fulfil your prescription. All parties in the e-consultation/fulfilment process are required by law to keep records of your details for a period of time. No one else will see any of your personal or medical information, nor will we divulge or sell your personal data to any third parties.

Q. Will I start receiving unsolicited emails, or SPAM, after I have an e-consultation and registered with you.

A. No. From time to time we may send you news of new products, pricing changes, or special offers, which is in compliance with UK Data Protection laws. If you wish to you can ask us to stop sending you these emails. We will also never pass on your details to any third parties that may do this without your written permission.

Q. Why do I need to provide my telephone number?

A. After you submit your e-consultation form, our doctor may have some questions regarding your information and would need to contact you. We would usually do this via email as a first means of communication but we may need to use the telephone in certain cases. Your telephone number will not be disclosed to any third parties.

Q. What exactly is included with your prices?

A. The services we provide for the prices advertised includes:

  •  Cost of UK GMC registered doctor’s e-consultation
  •  Free advice from our UK-registered doctors
  •  Cost of UK regulated pharmacy dispensing your prescription medicine

The only variable may be the cost of delivery, which is included in the listed prices for deliveries in the UK, but there may be additional charges for non-UK deliveries, which will be clearly stated before the e-consultation process is completed.

Orders are generally delivered within 1-5 working days to destinations in the UK and Europe, and 5-10 working days to destinations in the rest of the world.
