Age restrictions

We only accept orders from and dispatch orders to addresses in the United Kingdom.

All prices on this website are in pounds sterling and include VAT unless expressly stated otherwise. We take care to ensure that all pricing information on our website is accurate but occasionally there may be an error. We verify pricing at our dispatch centre.

We try to ensure that all information and colours are correct at the time of their publication. However, the representation of colours on your browser may differ from the actual colours of products supplied. Any typographical, clerical or other error is subject to correction without any liability on our part. Any advice or recommendation given on this website or otherwise given to you by us, or any of our employees or agents, is followed or acted upon entirely at your own risk and we are not liable for such advice or recommendation.

Concluding a binding contract

When we receive an order from you to purchase items from us, we will confirm that we have received the order by email to the address provided by you in your order. Your order is an offer to purchase an item and will not be binding on us until you have received an email to confirm that we have dispatched that item to you or you receive the item.

Our professional codes of conduct and legal restrictions may limit the number of any item we are permitted to supply to you and, as such, we have no obligation to supply quantities exceeding the relevant permitted maximum and will charge only for those we do supply. We reserve the right to reject any order.

Promotional codes

Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other voucher or discount code. Promotional codes cannot be used on discounted items. Promotional codes cannot be used on purchases of any codeine based products, infant formula milk, nappies, Alli, Deals of the Week, Deals of the Month, Fragrances of the Week, Fragrance of the Month, Gift of the Month, Buy More Save More products and products featured within BOGSHP, BOGOF, 3 for 2 promotions, or any offer or product which we deem inappropriate for discount.

Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with delivery promotions, i.e. free standard delivery on orders of £25 or over. By choosing to add a discount code on such an order, this then voids the free delivery discount and applies the discount code instead.

It is the customer’s responsibility to decide which discount is most beneficial before applying any discount code. No cash alternatives are available. If you are using a threshold promotional code that takes off a percentage or amount from your order, you will be charged full price if the total goes below this threshold in the case of a cancelled item or order.

Please note: some promotional codes may only be valid for one redemption per customer. 

Coupons at till

Vouchers can be redeemed by presenting them in store at time of purchase. Vouchers cannot be redeemed online unless there is an online voucher code printed alongside the barcode eg ABCDE123. Only one voucher can be used per transaction. Same vouchers cannot be used for multiple products purchased in same transaction. Vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or voucher. Vouchers cannot be used against Pharmacy Only medication. No cash alternative is available. Vouchers will be retained by pharmacy staff after use. Photocopies, damaged or defaced vouchers will not be accepted.  Subject to availability, whilst stocks last. See vouchers for valid from and to dates.

Payment and refunds

In providing payment card details, you confirm that you are authorised to use the card and authorise us or our payment service provider to take payment in full for the items in your order, postage and packing charges and any other charges that become due to us under these terms. Refunds, if applicable, will only be made using the payment gateway (e.g. Cybersource or PayPal) and/or to the card originally used for payment.

Secure Customer Authentication (SCA)

A new industry-wide system now applies whenever you make a purchase from retailers, including Whitworth Pharmacy, both online and in-store. These changes have been put in place for additional security when you are shopping.


When buying items online SCA validation will be more frequent. These checks are random, you will be asked to authenticate your payment by entering a unique passcode that can only be used once. If you have been selected for a random check, your card issuer will send this passcode to your phone, you will need to input this at the time of purchase.

You will need to ensure that your card issuer has your current and correct phone number, so that they can send a passcode to you if required. You will also need to have your phone with you when placing an order online.


We reserve the right to change the specification of items which are required to conform to any applicable standards or European Union requirements. We try to have sufficient stocks of goods to meet demand but, occasionally, items may be out of stock or unavailable from our suppliers. All items sold through this website are subject to availability. If any of the items on your order are not available, we may send a substitute of similar specification.

Notification of errors

Cancellation rights and damaged/faulty items

Details of these rights and how to exercise these rights are set out in the email we send to you to confirm your order and in our Returns Policy below.

Delivery and returns policy

Postage and packing costs

Postage and packing costs will be added to the cost of your order and will depend on the total cost of the items you order and, where delivery options are provided, the delivery option you choose. The postage and packing charge you will pay will be displayed on screen before you confirm your order to us. Where multiple items are included in one order, we may dispatch the items separately, in which case, you will only be charged one postage and packing charge.

Royal Mail 48 Tracked is £2.99 per order and they aim to deliver within 2 – 3 working days. Tracked to delivery point.

Royal Mail 24 Tracked is £3.99 per order and they aim to deliver the next working day. Tracked to delivery point.

All orders over £35 are delivered free of charge via Royal Mail 48 Tracked.

Purchasing in bulk/high unit volume

Please note that when purchasing high unit volumes of single lines (6+ units) that delivery promotions are null and void. This is as a result of high unit volume orders not being able to be dispatched via our normal third-party fulfilment. As a result, for any excessive bulk orders of single lines we will contact you directly regarding your order to discuss more accurate delivery costs for your purchase.

Delivery of orders

Please note: In adverse conditions your order(s) may be delayed.

Delivery timescales are estimates only. If you do not receive your order within 14 days of us confirming your order has been dispatched, you must notify us and we will investigate the incident,  provided you cooperate with the investigation. 

We hope you will be happy with any items you have ordered from us, but if you’re not entirely satisfied, please look at our returns policy below.

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations give you 14 calendar days from the date you received or collected your complete order to notify us of items you are not completely happy with. We must receive any item you return to us within 14 calendar days of your notification to us of your intention to return the items. Orders cancelled under these Regulations are entitled to a refund of any standard postage paid for the delivery of your order, but you are responsible for any postage incurred in returning the items you wish to cancel to us. Unfortunately, we do not refund postage on return of part orders.

Items must be returned in the same condition you received them, which includes keeping any hygiene seals in place. You will lose your right to return an item if you unseal a product that needs to be sealed for health or hygiene reasons.

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations give us the right to reduce the amount of refund that you receive, in the event that non faulty items being returned are damaged or used in any way. The amount which we might reduce your refund by will be dependent on the decrease in value of your use of the item. You should note that should your use mean that your items cannot be resold, this reduction may be 100%.

How to return items

You can return your unwanted them by post within 14 days of notifying us that you wish to return your items. Please ensure that you post your item(s) and include your original delivery note. You may also want to include the order number and your contact details in case we need to contact you about your return.

Online order returns, Whitworth Pharmacy, 2C Atkinsons Way, Foxhills Industrial Estate, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN15 8QJ

Please obtain a “Proof of Postage” which you can ask for any Post Office Counter.

Damaged and faulty items

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 allows you to claim a refund on faulty goods within 30 days of receipt. In some cases we may offer to replace or repair the item free of charge. If the first repaired or replacement item we supply also turns out to be faulty then you can claim a refund at this point, which includes the price you paid for it plus any postal charges.

This does not apply to items that have failed due to wear and tear. You may have additional manufacturer's warranties with some products, such as electrical items, giving you additional rights. Please check these carefully.

If you believe any of the items you have ordered to be damaged or faulty, please contact our Customer Services team. Either email  or call 01724 846448 and select option 7 during our opening hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm) and we will advise you how to return the items.


Your refund will be processed once we receive your returned items. Refunds are credited to the original card or account you paid with and will take five to seven working days to be credited to your account, depending on your card provider.

We will refund any standard postage paid on orders returned in full. Unfortunately, we do not refund postage on return of part orders. 

Refund exclusions

Unfortunately we cannot provide a refund on items that cannot be resold such as makeup, sanitary products, hair brushes, hair accessories and such like items. If you are unsure if your item can be returned please contact us for support. 


Our maximum liability for our failure to fulfil an order that we are legally bound to fulfil will be limited to the price paid by you for that order.

These terms are in addition to our standard terms & conditions of sale.
