The Account Holders’ contract with us is only to provide an intermediary/facilitation service.

3. How does Dispensary Green work?

Access the Dispensary Green website referred to above, register your details and confirm you have a prescription. The website will prompt you to add the relevant information and to verify your identity. If you have a prescription, you must upload a copy of the original prescription. If you do not have a prescription, you will be prompted to the services of UKMCCS, a governing body for Medical Cannabis Clinicians where there is a list of clinic providers, although you may access other organisations and prescribing doctors at your discretion to obtain a prescription. Once an order has been placed, the transaction is processed manually at the premises of Dispensary Green or its Partner by its registered pharmacists who are members of the General Pharmaceutical Council. This website should be regarded as an invitation to treat. Any order placed by a customer is an offer to purchase, which Dispensary Green may accept or decline in its absolute discretion without having to give a reason. A confirmation email is notification that we have received your offer on our website. A contract is deemed to be made at the point of a sale invoice being issued by Dispensary Green following checking of orders by a pharmacist. We only deliver prescription medication within the UK.

This can include contact via the website, telephone, sms, email or post. If we are not able to contact you, we may be unable to dispense your prescription.

Dispensary Green will endeavour to ensure that all prescription and medicines prices are correct on the website. In some cases, the prices may vary due to manufacturer price increase, product availability and/or special-order requirement. In such cases Dispensary Green will contact you on receipt of the prescription to inform you of any price difference. We are legally only able to dispense medicines for you when we have received either an electronic prescription which has been digitally signed by a prescribing doctor or alternatively a conventional paper prescription signed in writing by a prescribing doctor. prescriptions are issued entirely at the discretion of the prescriber.

Yes, if you are at least eighteen (18) years old and have been authorised to act on behalf of another or have the authority to represent someone else (as their proxy). If you wish to sign up as a proxy for someone else, you must first obtain consent from the patient. By signing up for someone as a proxy, you confirm that you have obtained consent from that person to act as their proxy to manage their medication. As part of our safeguarding responsibilities, we may need to verify your identity when handling prescriptions for safe custody controlled drugs. Please note this may result in an increase in the time taken to dispatching your medication.

Your privacy is important to us. Please see our Privacy Policy for details of what information we collect and how we will use and protect it. The information that you send to us will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You authorise us, at any time, to use any means that we consider necessary to verify your identity and creditworthiness with any third-party providers of information.

8. Can I cancel my order?

You can always choose to stop using the Service at any time.

You can cancel an order placed through the Service at any point until the medication is dispensed by Dispensary Green’s pharmacy and you will receive a full refund with the same method of payment.

You can make such cancellation by contacting us via the website. Alternately, you can email us at hello@dispensarygreen.com.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of prescription medications, once your items have been dispensed, you will be unable to cancel the order, return the medication or receive a refund. Any unwanted medicines must be disposed of by returning the medication to a pharmacy or to any authorised location.

If you receive medication that is incorrect, dispatched in error or damaged you should contact us via the website or alternatively at hello@dispensarygreen.com to discuss a replacement or refund.

9. When will I receive my medication?

Your prescribing doctor may want to speak to you before prescribing so your prescription request may not be processed immediately. If you consult with your prescribing doctor, you should tell them that you would like your prescription to be sent electronically to your ‘nominated’ pharmacy (Dispensary Green). Your prescribing doctor may be delayed in issuing a repeat prescription. Dispensary Green has no control over these delays; however, where possible, we will direct you to contact your prescribing doctor directly if we are informed of any issues with your request or your repeat prescription. Once the original prescription has been received by Dispensary Green we will dispense the medication. We or our Partner will then pack the medication and dispatch it via Parcel Force. It typically takes up to four working days for us to process your prescription. We cannot guarantee the exact time and day of arrival.
