Visiting your GP for medication isn’t always convenient, especially if you only need to pick up a prescription for a minor condition. While it’s vital that you see your GP for serious concerns, if you have a minor condition or repeat prescription, the process can be made simpler by ordering online.

At Express Pharmacy, we believe that seeking treatment for illness or health conditions shouldn’t be a burden – we offer an easy and convenient way to buy your medication. Read on for more information about the process of using an online pharmacy.

How To Order Medication Online

Step 1 – Select the treatment you need (either use our comprehensive A-Z treatment page, the navigational menu or search bar).

We offer a range of products for specific conditions, so it’s important to do your research before making a purchase. Take a look at our guides and advice pages for more information. Need further assistance? Our Patient Support Team are on hand on 0208 123 0703 to answer your questions or for a consultation.

Step 2 – To qualify for a treatment, you will need to complete a short online medical questionnaire. This helps us to assess whether a prescription is right for you based on your health and medical history.

All of the answers you provide are completely confidential. Once you’ve completed the questionnaire, it will be assessed by an independent prescriber who can authorise a free prescription if you are suitable.

Step 3 – After choosing your treatment and completing your online consultation, you can checkout and place your order. Login or register for an account with us and choose the right delivery option for you. Your medication will arrive discreetly and there will be no logos or branding on the packaging for complete privacy.

When you’ve reviewed your options and payment information, place your order and we’ll send you a confirmation.

What Are The Benefits Of Ordering Medication Online?

Ordering medication online is incredibly convenient, enabling you to get medication from any location and at any time, within just a few steps. The team at Express Pharmacy always maintain a high level of patient advice and are licensed by the MHRA and GPhC, so you can be confident that your prescription is being handled by qualified professionals.

Unlike other online pharmacies in the UK, we operate within an established community pharmacy in West London which holds an NHS license. This ensures that we have the necessary training and can deliver the appropriate level of patient care, advice and customer service that you’d expect from any pharmacy. Our pharmacist and dispensing team are always contactable during opening hours if you need any guidance or advice, and you may also visit us in-pharmacy for your consultation if you’d prefer.

With Express Pharmacy’s online ordering system, you can benefit from a convenient, quick and discreet service that ensures you receive the medication you need as soon as possible, as easily as possible.
