Covid-19 Policy And Updates

UK Drug Testing Covid 19 policy

Our prevention policy for Covid 19

  • We are all continuing to work very hard in our offices and warehouses to ensure that we’re able to get your drug testing kits and drug testing products to you as quickly as possible and safely, and in line with all UK Government guidelines for businesses, and current social distancing advice on preventing the spread of Covid 19
  • The health and safety of our staff, customers and delivery partners is always of the utmost importance to us.
  • Social distancing, regular covid testing and increased cleaning and hygiene measures, in line with UK government guidelines for business, are in place in our UK offices and warehouses, to protect our team, delivery partners and customers, and we are operating at normal staff capacity.
  • So far during the pandemic we have had no staff illness due to Covid-19, and the day to day operations of UK Drug Testing are continuing safely and efficiently.
  • If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support team, by e-mail or telephone during our office hours. Contact information at bottom of this page
  • We will continue to monitor the scientific and UK government advice on Covid-19 and will publish regular Covid updates on our website. 

Dispatch times

  • So far dispatch times from us are unaffected.
  • Most drug test orders received before 3pm Monday to Friday are still being dispatched from us on the same day either by Royal Mail or courier.

Delivery times 

Many of the delivery companies including Royal Mail and our courier delivery services are being adversely affected by staffing levels, due to staff self-isolating after being pinged by the NHS app.

Some areas such as Cornwall are particularly badly affected.  This is affecting deliveries, and the length of time that parcels are taking to be delivered.  We cannot provide a list of affected areas as this changes day to day.

We are extremely sorry, that we are having to ask for your patience in that some deliveries, will be taking longer to arrive than usual. This problem is being compounded at present with the lack of HGV drivers.

This should be a temporary problem, which will resolve itself when the delivery services staff no longer have to self-isolate if the Government, does indeed remove the need to do this in August as they have advised.

Please be advised of our best intentions at all times. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Due to this your drug testing supplies orders may take a little longer than usual to reach you, so please allow extra time for deliveries. We thank you for your continued patience and support during these exceptional times.

Safe Delivery 

  • To help ensure the safety of our customers and delivery partners, packages will usually be left at your doorstep where appropriate.
