We understand that your patients need their prescriptions at specific times and some orders may be extremely urgent. However, we cannot guarantee when it will be delivered as once it has left Phoenix Medical, it is sadly not in our hands. We recommend choosing Royal Mail special delivery when placing your prescriptions as it is the only guaranteed option available. As prescriptions are tailored made, they are exempt from the Consumers Act and unfortunately, once they have been placed, they are unable to be amended so please ensure all prescriptions are correct before placing them. Please visit the dispensary website to place your prescriptions.

Although we strive to ensure you receive your parcel on time by implementing an easier and more reliable service, it is sadly not a guaranteed service. We understand that you and your patients need your orders as soon as possible but we do advise you not to leave placing orders until the last minute to allow for any complications that may arise. Due to high demand and a large workload, orders must be placed before 2pm for next day delivery, as we have to allow time to carry out our numerous quality checks. We also offer a collection service which allows you or your customer to pick up your order from our office in Chelmsford, Essex. If you have any more questions or queries, please feel free to contact us on 01245 350822 or dispensary@phoenixmd.co.uk and we will be happy to help.
