When will my order be dispatched?

Orders placed after 12pm on a Friday will be processed the following Monday (excluding Bank Holidays). The Pharmacist reserves the right to hold an order until further consultation - to allow us to approve and dispatch your order promptly, please ensure that you leave a correct day time telephone number when placing your order.
