Dear Valued Customer,
As the country is trying to stay safe, there has been a huge increase in online sales which has put an immense strain on the resources of the majority of courier companies in the UK and Ireland, causing an increased possibility of delivery disruptions.
With the second national lockdown, Cyber Monday, Black Friday and Christmas around the corner, we have been working closely alongside the wide range of couriers that we use during the COVID-19 pandemic, and have kept all of our customers updated on potential impacts to their clinics on our homepage and throughout our website.
