6. Completed Orders
When you place an order for medicines or take up a service that involves the prescribing of medicines this will require us to perform an assessment of your clinical suitability for the medicines before the medicines can be approved for supply.
7. Concluding a binding contract
When we receive an order from you to purchase goods or services from us, we will confirm that we have received the order by sending a confirmation email to the contact email address that you supplied. Professional codes of conduct and legal restrictions may limit the number and frequency of any item we are permitted to supply to you and, as such, we have no obligation to supply quantities exceeding the relevant permitted maximum and will charge only for those we do supply. We reserve the right to reject any order.
In providing payment card details, you confirm that you are authorised to use the card and authorise us, or our payment service provider, to take payment in full for the items in your order and any associated postage and packaging fees and any other charges that become due to us under these terms and conditions.
9. Authorisation of orders for medicines
Our doctors can only make a decision as to whether it is in the best interests of the patient to receive a medicine when the doctor has all the relevant information. On occasion, this may require the doctor to ask the patient for additional information further than the information that was provided in response to an online questionnaire.
10. Postage Costs
Postage and packaging is charged on all orders of medicines at a flat rate of $9.95.
11. Delivery of orders
Our partner pharmacy will dispense all medicines. Medicines will be dispatched typically within 24 hours on business days. All medicines for delivery by post are sent out using Australia Post Express Post delivery.
Inquiries regarding missing parcels must be placed within 3 months of the parcel being dispatched. Australia Post only stores tracking information for 3 months after the date of dispatch. We are unable to replace/refund any orders not received if they cannot be investigated within the 3 month period.
If delivery is unsuccessful, and you are unable to collect your order in time, this is returned to us at a charge by Australia Post. Should you wish to have your order redelivered, this will incur a charge of $19.90, to cover the costs of return and redelivery. Any orders which are returned due to incorrect information will be refunded, less the delivery fee charged.
12. Returns Policy
Due to regulations, returns of prescription medications cannot be accepted. After leaving the pharmacy, storage conditions of the item cannot be guaranteed, which means the item can not be reused. For this reason, we are unable to accept returns of medication.
Cancelling your order:
In order to cancel your order please either phone or email us at the earliest instance. We can then issue a full refund on your order if the medication has not been dispatched.
14. Refunds Policy
Your refund will automatically be processed within 3-5 working days but in some cases can take up to 14 days. Orders rejected prior to a call with a doctor will be fully refunded. Orders refunded after a call with a doctor will be refunded minus the consultation fee. Missed appointments and rebookings will be subject to a $10 rebooking fee. Multiple missed appointments without paying the rebooking fee may result in a refund minus the rebooking fees for the missed appointments.
15. Complaints Procedure

We operate a continuous improvement policy in customer care and try our best to get things right the first time. If you are unhappy with anything please contact us immediately and our staff will be more than happy to rectify any issues you may have.
For complaints please direct your concerns to [email protected]. We will endeavour to respond to you within 48 hours. If it is more of an urgent matter then please phone us instead to rectify any issues at the earliest possible opportunity.
