An online The Pharmshop provides a selection of the products and services found in your high street The Pharmshop or pharmacy but through the internet. The service lets the customer buy from the comfort of their own home or office and provides massive savings compared to the high street. An online The Pharmshop however does not replace the care of your local healthcare professionals and should be used alongside local services.

We have a range of retail pharmacy and beauty shops you can visit across the country. Please contact us for more details. General contact information can be found under our Contact Us section. We are an internet only pharmacy, ensuring our costs are kept to a minimum and our prices as low as possible

Please visit our Employment Section for further information regarding opportunities at Pharmplex Direct

We operate a low cost operating model, dealing directly with the consumer. Therefore margins normally added onto products by middlemen and retailers to arrive at the high street price are avoided. Also being an internet pharmacy we have over 10,000 sq feet of storage space based at our central depot in Nottingham and are able to stock a wider range of goods than those available at your local Pharmplex, driving prices down further through our purchasing power. The savings we make are passed directly to our customers

Need Help With Prescriptions?

Yes, we are a UK regulated pharmacy, with physical premises in Nottingham. Our pharmacy services are fully compliant with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain’s protocols and NHS primary care trust requirements.

We have a team of highly trained professional pharmacists who dispense prescription orders. All our pharmacists are members of the National Pharmacy Association and are registered with the RPSGB. Our pharmacists have years of prior experience, working for Lloyds and many others. Overall the pharmacists have over 30 years of pharmacy experience in dispensing medication and providing patient care. We also have a team of pharmacy technicians who work alongside our pharmacists to prepare prescription requests.

You can speak to the pharmacist in charge during office hours by calling 0115 913 8204 and selecting option 3. Our pharmacists are able to provide help and advice on a number of conditions in a confidential manner.

Yes, our service is fully legitimate and complies with UK laws and regulations. We understand that there are a number of illegal websites which operate from outside the UK selling counterfeit unsafe lifestyle drugs that have been featured in the media. We are not in the same category as these outfits and are lobbying hard to close them down.
Our service is fully transparent and overseen by the same UK bodies that oversee all high street Pharmplexs. You can be assured that you are dealing with a professional organisation and that the medication you receive is original and safe.

You can get free NHS prescriptions if at the time the prescription is dispensed you:
• are 60 or over
• are under 16
• are 16-18 and in full-time education
• are pregnant, or have had a baby in the previous 12 months and have a valid exemption certificate, see below
• have a listed medical condition and have a valid exemption certificate,
• have a continuing physical disability which means you cannot go out without help from another person and have a valid exemption certificate
• hold a valid war pension exemption certificate and the prescription is for your accepted disablement
• are an NHS inpatient
You are also entitled to free prescriptions if you or your partner (including civil partners), receive either:
• are 60 or over
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Pension Credit Guarantee Credit; or
• you are named on, or are entitled to (use your award notice as evidence), an NHS tax credit exemption certificate
• you are named on a valid HC2 certificate, see below.

 

To apply for an HC2 certificate, you should complete form HC1 available from Jobcentre Plus offices or most NHS hospitals. Your doctor, dentist or optician may have one too. You can also get an HC1 by calling 0845 610 1112 .
If you do not qualify for an HC2 certificate, you may still receive some help towards other NHS charges if you are sent an HC3 certificate

If you are not entitled to free prescriptions and you think you will have to pay for more than three items in three months or 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC). To check the cost of a PPC you can either ring 0115 913 8204 or look in leaflet HC12 (available at GP surgeries).
You can choose to pay for a 12-month PPC in a lump sum or by 10 monthly Direct Debit installments. If you pay by Direct Debit, you are entering into a commitment to pay all the installments.
