We accept payment from all major credit and debit cards, and we also accept payments via PayPal and Amazon Pay.

Where possible, we endeavour to process and despatch all orders placed before 4.00pm the same day.

Whilst we aim to have all items available for immediate despatch, sometimes the manufacturer has production issues which results in delays.

Availability is shown in the product listing- please note, we also process offline orders, which do not immediately update the availability online. We always advise checking stock availability before placing an order if you are in urgent need of the item.

If you place an order for an unavailable item, you will be informed via email. You can then either wait for the item to arrive, choose an alternative or cancel the item from the order and receive a refund.

If there is a problem with the payment (if your bank declines the payment, there are security concerns etc) we will contact you to advise. We reserve the right to decline an order or payment- we can also insist that an order is only sent to the registered address of the payment card.

  • Any free gifts or other additional bundled items delivered with the products must also be returned.

  • You must obtain a Returns Authorisation Number and label the parcel/s with it to allow the return to be dealt with as efficiently as possible.

Some products are made to order or are shipped directly from our manufacturer.  If you wish to return these items without a fault, a restocking fee may be applied. Please contact our Returns Team for more information.

  • We cannot cover the returns costs on liquids, you the customer will be responsible to organise and pay for the return - Regardless of this, please still contact our Returns department before sending us your return.

For some items purchased we may ask the manufacturer to contact you directly to establish the nature of the fault and then (depending on the fault) we will either organise a repair or replacement or in some instances ask you to liaise with the manufacturer directly.

In some circumstances when products are past their warranty or repairs are outside the warranty terms a charge may occur.

When an item becomes faulty more than 30 days after purchase, please call the MEDICARE SUPPLIES Returns Department for advice.
