Covid-19 Business Update

Our prevention policy for Covid 19-last updated 6/12/21

Everyone at Valuemed medical supplies UK in our offices and warehouses and our delivery partners, are continuing to work very hard to ensure that we are able to get your medical supply orders to you as quickly and safely, and in line with all UK Government guidelines for UK businesses.

Thankfully levels of Covid 19 infection are currently still relatively low in our part of rural Norfolk, and have been low throughout the pandemic, and we have managed to maintain the service we offer, while following UK government guidelines.

    Covid 19 measures 

    • The health and safety of our staff, customers and delivery partners is always of the upmost importance to us.
    • Social distancing, use of hand sanitiser and sanitising sprays, regular lateral flow Covid testing and increased cleaning and hygiene measures in line with UK government guidelines are in place in our UK offices and warehouses, to protect our team and customers.
    • If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support team by e-mail or telephone during our office hours. Contact information at bottom of this page
    • We will continue to monitor the scientific and UK government advice and will publish regular updates on our website.

    Dispatch times

    • So far dispatch times from our UK warehouses are unaffected.
    • Most orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday are still being dispatched from us on the same day either by Royal Mail or courier.

    Delivery times 

    • While UK delivery times have improved considerably,  Covid-19 measures and seasonal pressure on the delivery services at this time of year, may slow some of the deliveries in some areas, due to staff shortages in the Royal Mail and the courier delivery companies. This varies from day to day and area to area.
    • We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause to you.
    • Due to this your order may take a little longer than usual. We thank you for your continued patience and support.
    • For the quickest UK delivery, and the best chance of a next day UK delivery, please select Royal Mail Special Delivery or priority courier delivery
    • International deliveries by both courier and mail may also take longer than usual.

    The following next day UK delivery options have now been reinstated :

    • Royal Mail Special Delivery service 
    • Next business day guaranteed UK courier 
    • Next business day guaranteed UK courier delivery before mid day

      International online delivery options 

      The international delivery options are unchanged but may take longer than usual currently depending on the country the goods are going to. Changes in customs regulations following Brexit are also impacting EU delivery times.
