Domain Name Details
The domain name record for this site tells us that the name was registered in 2013 and that it doesn’t expire until 2023. A long history and many years until the domain expires is a good indication of a legit store.
Websites which are trying to rip people off don’t normally register domains for more than a year in advance, this is because they don’t have faith that they will be around for long.
Business Contact Information
Safe and trustworthy companies normally aren’t afraid to provide their business name and address details. The contact information and business location are displayed on every page of the online pharmacy.
When we check this address we find that it is a real location of an office block. The business also shows up on maps at this location.
A check on the business name in the British Government’s database shows that this is a genuine, active enterprise at the same location. This database record also gives us the names of the directors of the company as well as details about the financial standing of the business.
As this online drugstore is still located in and sells products in Europe, they are bound by the EU distance selling regulations. The pharmacy has to display logos on their site which link to Government agencies which oversees online pharmacies. They do display the required logos and these do link correctly to the sites they should.
They are registered on the UK Government agency MHRA database. Their website and business location are correctly reported in this database entry.
The other logos they display, link to the General Pharmaceutical Council and the Care Quality Commission. The CQC report that the logo links to is for the doctor service which prescribes medicine on the pharmacy store. The doctor service is called MSF Medical Services Limited and was inspected in October 2017 and found to be a safe operation.
Drugs on Offer
The treatments on offer from this pharmacy are quite limited, including only men’s health, hair loss, weight loss, migraine and women’s health treatments. You do need a prescription and a free prescription can be issued from their UK based doctor service.
They also offer a price promise guarantee, crediting you the difference if you find the product cheaper.
There is another online pharmacy located in the same office building. Though they seem to be operated by different businesses, it seems probable that the same people own both companies.

Shipping is free using Royal Mail’s 1st Class Delivery. You can pay extra if you need to use Special Delivery and orders are dispatched the same day when received before 3.45pm. They only ship products to UK addresses.
When looking for customer testimonials for this store, it is good to see that there isn’t a testimonial page on the site. Testimonial pages are naturally going to biased, whilst independent review sites normally offer you a better understanding of the how reliable the company is. This store links to a Trustpilot page for AssuredPharmacy.co.uk reviews.
The customers which have provided feedback on this page, in general, give the store high marks. The overall result is a 5-star excellent rating from nearly 5,000 customers.
A large number of very positive customer feedback like this is a very good sign. It gives you more confidence in Assured Pharmacy and increases sales for them. There is a slight issue here, however. They are encouraging people to leave feedback on the review page, with many people having left multiple reviews.
This encouragement may come in the form of a discount on future orders or they may simply send out emails asking customers to leave a testimonial. Whilst this probably doesn’t change the result completely, it does rather tarnish the level of credence we can give to these testimonials.
This store seems to be doing most things right, with correct regulation, successful history and the correct measures in place to keep customers safe. We award this online drugstore 4-stars out of a possible five.
We mark them down slightly due to the restriction on delivery locations and the encouragement for customers to post feedback.
