Next day delivery on medical supplies
Orders placed just before a strike, on the strike dates or immediately after the strikes will likely be subject to postal delays in the postal system due to the strikes.
Our next day Royal Mail delivery service, Royal Mail Special Delivery, will be suspended from the day before, during the strikes, and for one day after.
If you need your medical supplies quickly during this period, please select UK courier delivery instead of Royal Mail.
UK postal strikes
The postal strikes will cause delays in delivery if you select Royal Mail delivery service. The strikes should not affect the courier delivery services, although they will be much busier during this time .
