3. Our Services
Pharmacy Delivery Services
Our pharmacists are only able to make a decision about whether it is in the best interests of the patient to receive medicine or treatment when they have all relevant information. As part of our Services, we may need to speak to you to ask for additional information or to your GP or other medical professional responsible for your medication if we have questions about your prescription or treatment. Our pharmacists reserve the right to query any prescription for medication or treatment and place it on hold based on clinical judgement, for example errors with strength or dosage.
In the event we do not have a particular medication or treatment available we will contact you as soon as practicable to let you know. You will have the following options: (1) if it is not timesensitive, you can choose to wait until the medication becomes available to us and we will process your prescription and provide our Services once it becomes available; or (2) provide an alternative medication or treatment in consultation with our pharmacists and your medical professional; or (3) we can return your prescription to you so you are able to take it to another pharmacist, in which case we will consult with you on whether you would like us to deliver your other medication on your prescription that is available to us (as applicable).
Our Services are not intended to be used in an emergency situation. If you believe that you, or someone you are assisting, is in an emergency situation or needs urgent attention, you should immediately dial 999.
Purchasing Over The Counter Products
You can also purchase over-the-counter products from our online shop ("Products").
You can choose your Products from our online shop and add these to your shopping chart on the website. Once you have finished browsing, go to the "view chart" section of our website. You will be asked to login (if you are an existing customer) or, if you are a new customer, you will need to set up an account with us and provide us with certain information to enable us to process your order. You agree that the information you provide shall meet the requirements set out in clause 4.2.
We contact you to confirm we've received your order or, in certain circumstances, we will contact you to ask for further information in accordance with clause 3.9, and we accept it when we dispatch the Product and confirm dispatch to you.
We accept credit and debit card payments through our website. By providing us with your payment details, you confirm that you are authorised to use the chosen payment method and authorise us and/or our payment service provider to take payment in full for the Products, postage and packing charges and any other fees that are due to us in accordance with these Terms.
To purchase certain Products, you may need to speak to a pharmacist before we can process your order. If this is the case, we will contact you using the contact information provided during the payment process.
Sometimes we reject orders, for example, because a Product is unexpectedly out of stock, because we can't verify your age or certain health conditions, because you are located outside of the UK, or because the Product was mispriced by us. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid in respect of the Product.
We reserve the right to limit or refuse the sale of over-the-counter medicines or treatments (in our sole discretion). This may be for any reason at our discretion, for example if you are trying to buy large quantities of certain medication such as paracetamol.
You will not resell or otherwise distribute the Products we sell to you. We sell Products to you for personal use only.

9.1.2 the loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach; or
9.1.3 any loss or damage or increased risk of loss or damage results from a breach by you of these terms and conditions.
In particular, we are not responsible for:
9.2.1 unexpected loss, meaning where it was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your registration or order meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable);

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. Nothing in these terms and conditions affects your legal rights.
You doctor or healthcare professional should discuss the side effects and expected results of your use of any medication or treatment. Subject to clause 9.3, we are not responsible if the medication or treatment you are prescribed do not produce the desired results or outcomes.

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
