Delivery times 

  • Although delivery times are greatly improved now Covid-19 measures may still slow some of the Royal Mail and Courier service delivery times in some areas of the UK particularly in Tier 4 areas, so please allow extra time for deliveries.
  • We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause

  • Saturday courier delivery is now available as a delivery option for orders placed on a Friday that are over £150. You must select Saturday delivery to get this option, and there is an a additional delivery charge of £24.99

Safe Delivery 

  • To help ensure the safety of our customers and delivery partners, packages will usually be left at your doorstep where appropriate.
  • Please allow the delivery person or postman to move back before you collect your package.
  • If you would like to tell us a safe location to leave your package, please add delivery instructions in the notes when placing your order, or if ordering by telephone please advise the person processing your order so that they can add it to order delivery information.

Guaranteed next day delivery on drugs tests no longer guaranteed

As this is no longer within our control, we have had to remove the following next day guaranteed UK delivery services as both the Royal Mail and the courier service are no longer able to meet these, due to the impact of Covid-19 on their services. We are apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to you.
