Our customer services and warehouse teams are all continuing to work very hard to ensure that we’re able to get your Valuemed medical supply orders to you as quickly as possible, while still following UK government Covid -19 guidelines.

For the fastest UK delivery please select 1st class Royal Mail for small orders and UK courier for large orders.

Covid-19 measures are still slowing some of the Royal Mail and UK courier service delivery times and international delivery services , so please allow extra time for deliveries.
