2.1 Returned goods:

If you cancel your order before we despatch it, you will not be charged.

Please notify us at sales@totalpharmacy.co.uk if you wish to return goods. The return address is:

Totalpharmacy.co.uk
Morton's totalpharmacy
Trinity Square
Axminster, EX13 5AP
Telephone: 01297 639999

When returning goods please remember that you are liable for the return of the goods. We recommend making sure the package is secure and protected and that the return address is checked. We also recommend using a recorded/signed for delivery with insurance in case your return parcel is lost.

If you cancel your order after we despatch it but within 14 days of receiving it (and it is a returnable item), you will have to pay for return postage. If the items are in a resaleable condition we will refund your order.

2.11 Returnable items:

Returned items must be in a resaleable condition.

We cannot accept returns of prescription medicines or items that are not sealed or where the seal has been broke. We cannot accept the return of items that are perishable.

If your parcel is returned to us for any reason by the postal carrier, we will charge for a redelivery fee which will be based on the cost to us of reposting to your address

2.2 Other charges:

Orders placed for a prescription item cannot be despatched until we receive a valid prescription. Orders placed for a prescription item where a prescription is not received will be charged a £3 administration fee.

3. Pricing and VAT

All prices include VAT unless otherwise stated. (Prescription only medications supplied against a valid prescription are zero-rated and attract no VAT and these prices are displayed ex-VAT.)

If you login to your account and your primary billing address is in the Channel Islands, all prices will automatically be displayed ex-VAT.

To qualify for VAT free purchases, please note it is the delivery address, not the billing (cardholder address) which must have a Channel Islands address. Channel Islands residents shipping products to mainland addresses will be charged VAT on rateable items.

UK residents ordering a zero-rated prescription medicine together with a rateable item will have VAT applied (at the rate of the highest rateable item in the order) to the postage and packaging charges as per UK law.

Any order containing only zero-rated prescription items will be exempt from VAT on postage and packaging charges.

This information may be subject to change depending on current UK VAT legislation.

Certain prescription medicines attract a small dispensing fee. Click here for details

4. Payments 

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro (Switch), Electron and Delta.

We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Back-ordered items are not charged until they are shipped.

If your order is placed, but not accepted by totalpharmacy you will not be charged and/or a refund will be given immediately. We reserve the right to refuse an order under any circumstances.

By clicking the 'accept' button of these 'terms and conditions' you are accepting these 'terms and conditions' and are making an offer to purchase the goods.

We accept payment by cheque. Your order will be despatched when the cheque has cleared. (Approximately 7 working days after receipt.) So please be aware that payment by cheque is a very slow method of purchasing an item.

We reserve the right to charge a processing fee for orders which are made without the relevant authorisations. eg ordering a 'prescription only medicine' without sending a prescription.

5.1 Lost parcels:

Our standard post is Royal Mail first class recorded delivery. This will usually be delivered within 1 or 2 days. If it is late contact your local Royal Mail depot. If the depot has it they will only keep it for one week before returning it to us. If the depot do not have it then Royal Mail state that a claim cannot be made and therefore a parcel cannot be confirmed as lost until 15 working days ie 3 full weeks after the item was posted. If your parcel has not arrived after 15 working days after posting then please contact us. We will send a Royal Mail form P58 which you will need to complete and return to us within 7 days.

If you do not inform us of a missing parcel in writing within 6 weeks of your order being placed we cannot refund your order. (Unless we have received the parcel back from Royal Mail)

5.2 Complaints 

We endeavour to respond to all complaints immediately but always within one working day.

Please direct any complaints to sales@totalpharmacy.co.uk

If an incorrect name or delivery address is given to us, we cannot accept responsibility or offer a refund for any delay, damage or loss.

Note: Phone calls are charged for a standard BT line - you will be charged by your phone company at national or local call rates depending on your location. We do not operate a premium or lo-call line.

Totalpharmacy.co.uk and the WEEE Regulations

6. WEEE Regulations - What is WEEE?

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE is one of the fastest growing waste streams in Europe. WEEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, could have a serious detrimental effect on the environment and human health. To help customers identify Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment, a crossed out wheelie bin logo will be displayed on the product. These products should not be disposed of with household waste or sent to landfill sites.

What are the WEEE regulations?

From July 2007 all manufacturers (or anyone else selling a product on the market in the EU) are liable to pay for take-back, treatment and recycling of end-of-life electrical equipment. This is to reduce the amount of such items being sent to landfill sites.

What are Totalpharmacy.co.uk doing to meet the WEEE regulations?

As a distributor we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of WEEE. For this reason, and to comply with WEEE regulations, we offer a free take back scheme. When you purchase a new product you may return your old product to us for environmentally friendly disposal. We can only do this if the new product has the same use as the old one, so if you buy a new electric toothbrush we will take back your old one. Please return old products within 28 days of purchasing your new one to:

WEEE returns,
Totalpharmacy.co.uk
Morton's totalpharmacy
Trinity Square
Axminster, EX13 5AP
Telephone: 01297 639999

More information on WEEE and recycling can be found at http://www.recycle-more.co.uk/

Which products do Totalpharmacy.co.uk sell that are covered by the WEEE regulations?

Small electrical items such as hairdryers and electric toothbrushes. These items can be identified by the crossed out wheelie bin logo (see below) in the product literature.

WEEE

What happens to returned items?

Any electrical items returned to us will be taken to a WEEE compliant recycling site.

7. General Terms & Conditions:

7.1. SUPPLY

Items are not supplied on a trial basis, except where covered by your right to cancel (see our returns policy).

Our website will not automatically process orders from outside the UK, Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Royal Mail delivery:

If there is no-one to sign for the parcel at the delivery address when Royal Mail attempt a delivery, then Royal Mail will leave an 'Advice of call' card at the address. The card will explain how to get your parcel. Please note: Royal Mail will only keep your parcel at your local depot for 1 week. After this time they will return it to us. (This can take up to a month !) Once it has started its return process we have no control over it and cannot offer a refund or resend until we have received it back.

It is possible that for whatever reason, Royal Mail attempt a delivery but do not leave an 'advice of call' card. For this reason, when you receive your 'order despatched' email from us, please be aware that your parcel is on its way and will be returned to us by Royal Mail after 1 week if you do not contact Royal Mail to have it redelivered.
