Tracked delivery

For total convenience and reassurance

Perfect for repeat prescriptions, choose our next day or 2-day service. Both offer Inflight delivery options and we’ll send a notification the before and morning of delivery.

Guaranteed delivery

For time-critical medications

It’s Royal Mail to the rescue for those last-minute meds, with a guaranteed next day service for arrival by 9am or by 1pm (or your money back*), and the reassurance of a signature on delivery.

Same day delivery

For urgent medications

If it’s controlled prescription drugs or it simply has to be there same day, we’ll collect on average within the hour and provide real-time tracking (by street) to the door. You’ll get a full audit trail and a digital signature, for total peace of mind.
