Our HealthExpress Ethos is to provide a complete and stress-free online service for medication. We specialise in medications that require a consultation and prescription in the UK. Our online clinic provides support, advice and treatment with UK qualified doctors and pharmacy. Our service includes information on conditions and offers a free online medical consultation with a qualified doctor and free next day delivery.
A doctor-approved consultation process is the industry standard and 100% required in the UK. This is traditionally produced through face-to-face doctor's appointments resulting in a diagnosis and prescription to be taken to the pharmacy.
At HealthExpress, we have combined these necessary medical requirements within an online service format. This means no booking appointments, no wait times and no face-to-face consultation. Not only does this offer discretion, if required, but is more convenient for individuals needing repeat prescriptions for long-term medications.
The process is essentially the same; you have a short consultation with a doctor who will review your medical details and suggest treatment options. When you complete the order, it will be sent to the pharmacy. How the service differs is that this consultation is completed virtually. Additional elements include our partner doctorsending your prescription straight to the pharmacy and delivery straight to your door, meaning you can order treatment anywhere.
Medications requiring a doctor's approval have a risk of side effects. If medication is not thoroughly reviewed on a case-by-case basis, this can cause more harm to your health. It is therefore required to obtain a prescription slip from a certified medical professional in the UK.
Whilst the traditional format involved going to the GP, in the 21st century, you can do this from the comfort of your own home.
To ensure a pharmaceutical website is certified and safe, you will clearly see pharmacy and doctor certification logos across the website. HealthExpress has been certified by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GMC) and has a verified MHRA link.
This is for your own safety so if a website claiming to sell medications doesn't ask you to complete a consultation, it is breaking the law. The medication you receive may not work, or more importantly, damage your health.
