Important information Regarding Pharmacy First and Coronavirus


Information Updated 02/04/2020


With the current outbreak of Coronavirus we understand that you are probably trying to carry on as normal. We are aware that we play a massive role in making sure you have medication delivered to you.


Online Orders

We are continuing to receive an unprecedented amount of orders and we are constantly working to process all orders as soon as possible. There are currently delays of upto 5 - 7 working days to process orders. We urge all customers to only order what they need so this can give a chance for all other customers to buy the medication they need.


Our Stock

We are constantly working with all of our suppliers to restock as soon as possible however due to unprecedented demand for medicines there can be delays with certain medication. Any medication that is delayed, will be marked as “to follow” on your order. If the medication is unavailable due to unprecedented demand, this item will be refunded and the remainder of the order will be sent.



We have been contacted by our area manager for Royal Mail informing us of any steps taken by them to ensure that your orders are delivered contactless. Unfortunately there are also delays with the entire postal system and special measures have been put in place to prioritise 1st class and Signed for postage. We understand that this can be frustrating however this is outside of our control and Royal Mail are constantly updating their website for any further information. More information in regards to service updates can be found here: and information regarding the steps they have taken so far regarding the Coronavirus can be found here:



To help better protect our staff, we will be quarantining all returns for a maximum of 14 days. After such period of time your return will be processed and will be refunded.



Finally, I would like to thank all of our Pharmacy First team for all their work during these uncertain times and I would also like to thank all of our customers for their patience whilst we process your orders as quickly and safely as possible.


We will be continuing to monitor the Government website and the NHS for any further updates and provide updates where necessary to you.




Kindest Regards,




Pharmacy First
