Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, all orders for overnight delivery must be received by 3 pm. 

We operate a same day or next day delivery service for all our products. Urgent orders should be placed by calling us on 01509 232 222. Non-urgent orders can be placed via our online ordering system.

For delivery options and prices, please refer to our price list at the bottom of this page.

Temperature monitored deliveries

We use single-use temperature and time monitor strips on our blood products when they are being delivered to a more remote location. This will indicate if the maximum storage temperature for the product has been exceeded while in transit and for how long. For more information on how to read and use these, please refer to our guide. 

Returns

All blood products that have been ordered and dispatched are non-returnable, unless damaged or faulty on arrival. All non-blood products ordered in error may be returned within 7 days of receipt, subject to the items being unopened, in their original packaging, and in a saleable condition.

To return an item to us, please contact us on 01509 232 222 initially so we can discuss this with you. For damaged and faulty products, the form on this page will then need to be completed and sent to us, along with the product if requested.
