  • Is the Packaging discreet?

    All packaging has only the address label on the outside. This has the sender information in small lettering, as "Simple Online Healthcare" and our return address, but no information as to the contents. 

    We only use plain, discreet packaging without any branding.

  • Is the service confidential?

    Your medical data and order history is completely secure and confidential. It will only be viewable by our pharmacy staff and prescribers who are bound to confidentiality by the code of conduct for registered health professionals.

  • What will appear on my bank statement?

    When you pay by credit/debit card, payments will be shown on your statement under the name "Simple Online Healthcare"

  • Is the service legal?

    Yes, we operate within AHPRA's guidelines for online consultations.

  • Do I need a prescription to order?

    You do not need an existing prescription to use our service.

    We offer a free consultation process which is reviewed by one of our prescribers who will issue a private prescription (for all eligible patients).

  • Is the medication supplied genuine?

    Yes, all medication is supplied from our Brisbane based pharmacy.

    All medicines are sourced from Australian registered wholesalers.

    To verify medicine authenticity, you can often contact the manufacturer of the medication, quoting the batch number of the medicine received.

  • Are there any prescription or consultation fees?

    No, unlike many online doctors Simple Online Doctor does not charge consultation fees. Instead, we offer a clear, upfront price that includes both the medicine and consultation.

    We check our prices regularly against our competitors to ensure we are offering our customers some of the most affordable healthcare online.

  • How do I place an order?

    To place an order you will need to complete an online assessment. This can be accessed under "Online Scripts" and finding your health condition or by searching for your medicine in the search bar.

  • What treatments are available?

    We can provide a wide range of treatments at Simple Online Doctor. The conditions we can treat can be found under "Online Scripts".

    If your condition or treatment is not currently available it may mean we are unable to currently provide that service online. Patient safety and effective healthcare is our priority. This does mean we are unable to list certain treatments due to safety concerns and government regulations.

    We are always looking to add to our range to help as many people as we can, but we only do so if it is considered safe and effective by our Australian medical team and government regulators.

  • Are you a subscription service?

    No, we believe in only providing medicines when they are needed. To avoid supplying our customers with too much medicine and forcing unwanted monthly payments, we supply medicines only when requested and appropriate.

  • How long does delivery take?

    Orders placed before 10 AM during the week, are sent out on the same day, as long as the order is approved by the doctors. Orders placed over the weekend, are dispatched on Monday.

    You can use the Australia Post Express Post estimator, to see how long it should take to reach your address. Generally delivery is next day for major cities (i.e Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra), but can take up to 5 business days for rural areas.

    The starting postcode is 4007.

  • Will I receive a tracking number?

    You should receive your tracking number by email automatically, once Australia Post have collected your order for delivery.

    This is usually around 6PM AEST. You should check your junk mail if you have not received this. If you don't receive the email, please let us know, and we will get this for you manually.

  • Do I need to sign for my delivery?

    Yes. All orders must be signed for.

    If you are not in to receive your package, it is automatically sent to your local post office and held for 5 business days. You should be left a card, or updated online with the tracking reference number.

    If it is not collected within this time frame, this will be returned, and there are redelivery fees associated with this.

    Redelivery costs $20 due to costs incurred for return and redelivery.

  • Do you deliver outside Australia?

    No, we do not offer delivery to any countries outside Australia.

  • Do you delivery to PO Boxes and Parcel Lockers?

    We do currently allow shipping to PO Boxes and Parcel Lockers, but you must ensure you use your residential address in the billing address fields on checkout.

    If you are not in to receive your package, it is automatically sent to your local post office and held for 5 business days. You should be left a card, or updated online with the tracking reference number.

  • Can I put my local post office as my delivery address?

    Not directly. Post offices will return packages sent directly to them, and this will incur a $20 redelivery charge.

    You can get your delivery to an Australian Post office if you sign up for Australia Posts Parcel Collect. You can find more details on this Australia Post page https://auspost.com.au/receiving/collection-points/choose-a-post-office-for-deliveries
