The information we collect
When you buy services or goods from us we will collect and store certain personal information to allow us to process your order and fulfill our obligation to you in addition to notifying you of your order status.

For patients using our NHS Prescription and repeat prescription service we will need to know whether you pay for your NHS prescriptions and if not the reason that you are exempt from payment (akin to the back of the traditional green prescription form). We also collect information about your existing medical conditions and any other prescription medication that have been or currently are prescribed for you by your doctor. Our systems will store the details of all medicines and products that we have supplied to you on either an acute or repeat basis.

You also have the right to confidentiality under the Data Protection Act 1998, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the common law duty of confidence. In addition, all of our staff are legally contracted to keep patient information confidential.
We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy from time to time. Any changes to the Policy will appear on this page, which you should check if you have any concerns. By continuing to use the site you are deemed to accept changes to this Policy.
