About Us

Peak Pharmacy Online is a distance-selling pharmacy. 

This means we are not like your traditional pharmacy as you cannot come visit us.  But this doesn’t mean that we care less about your health.   Need help, just give us a call.  If we are ever unable to process your prescription or obtain a medicine we will contact you. 

Questions, Suggestions, Complaints

Our aim is to give the highest possible standard of service. We would like you to tell us what you think about the service we provide at this pharmacy and any suggestions of ways in which we can improve our services to you. If you want to make a complaint, you can choose to complain to either ourselves in the first instance, or to: 

NHS England PO Box 16738
B97 9PT

Telephone: 0300 311 22 33

NHS 111

When the pharmacy is closed, if you urgently need medical help or advice, but it’s not a life-threatening situation, contact NHS 111, by calling 111. Information can also be accessed at

Threats of Violence

We may refuse to provide services to individuals or those accompanying those individuals who are violent, threaten violence, commit or threaten to commit a criminal offence.

NHS Services We Provide 

We provide the above NHS services on behalf of:

NHS England, PO Box 16738, Redditch, B97 9PT

NHS Prescription Dispensing

We can dispense your NHS prescriptions so long as your GP surgery sends electronic prescriptions. 

We keep a comprehensive stock of medicines and use a fast and efficient wholesaler service to enable us to dispense all prescriptions promptly. We can also dispense NHS repeat dispensing prescriptions. Ask us for more information about this service. 

All medicines are dispensed in child-resistant containers unless you ask us not to. Please remember: keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children. Our staff can advise you on the safe storage of medicines. 

Unwanted Medicines

Please return all unwanted medicines to any pharmacy where they will be disposed of safely. We can accept returns of unused medicines. Please note that we cannot accept returns of sharps e.g. needles.  Please contact your GP surgery for further information.  

Health Advice and Self-Care

Our pharmacists and trained assistants are available to provide advice on all medicines and minor ailments. Want to discuss something simply pick up the phone or send us an email. All discussions are private and confidential.

We can also give you advice on how to live a healthy life, for example, advice on how to stop smoking or eat healthily. We can also direct you to other sources of advice and assistance if we cannot help you ourselves. 

Medicine Delivery

To give you an idea of how long it will take to receive your medicines, it usually takes your GP around 48hrs to approve your prescription, and it will then take us around 24-48hrs to dispense your medicines. All medicines are then shipped by Royal Mail to the address specified on your prescription or another nominated address if more convenient. We use tracked services so you can follow your prescription every step of the way. Please note that delivery usually takes 2-3 working days from the point we ship your medicine. Please order early so as to avoid any unnecessary delays as your GP, Royal Mail and Peak Pharmacy do not work weekends.  

Controlled Substances – These will require a signature and we will only deliver to the address on the prescription.  

Refrigerated medicines, for example insulin. These will only be posted Monday-Thursday and will be shipped using a next-day service.   

Medication Use Reviews and New Medication Service

Need help with your medicines, or have you just started a new medicine? You may be eligible for a review with our pharmacist.  Our focus is on ensuring you get the most from your prescribed treatments.  

Other Services We Provide 

As well as operating an NHS pharmacy processing NHS prescriptions, Peak Pharmacy Online has an established website selling a wide range of over-the-counter medicines. 

The websites we operate include:

At both websites, we offer consultations for prescription medicines to treat and prevent specific conditions without a trip to your GP.  Conditions we prescribe for include erectile dysfunction, prescription strength hay fever treatments, malaria prophylaxis and more.
