The Whois database is a place where you can find some background information on website addresses. For this domain name, we find that the site was originally registered in 2008, with it not expiring until 2025. A long time registration like this suggests that this is more likely to be a legit business, stores which are trying to rip people off tend not to be around for very long and are normally only registered for one year at a time.
Finding the business name and address on a pharmacy store can greatly increase your trust in the site. Unfortunately, on numerous occasions, we have found drugstores using fake addresses to make customers think that the site is backed by an established business.
When checking the business name and address found on this site, we find it is a genuine pharmacy store on the high-street in Axminster, in England. The pharmacy behind the operation is called Morton’s Pharmacy and both the site and the pharmacy are operated by Ian Morton Limited.
Regulation of online drugstores is important to make sure you are as safe as possible when purchasing medicine online. Since this business is based in the UK, which is currently still in the EU, they need to abide by the European regulations. If they were not to be sticking to these rules, they would be acting illegally.
The business behind this store (Ian Morton Ltd.) needs to be registered with the UK Government agency responsible for overseeing online pharmacies. The MHRA is the agency and a running a check on their database shows that the business is correctly registered.
The site is also required to display the common European distance selling logo on every page which offers medication for human consumption. They are correctly displaying this logo in accordance with the rules.
The dispensing pharmacy needs to be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council in order to be legal. When we check on the GPC database we discover that this pharmacy is correctly registered.
Despite correctly adhering to these legal requirements, LegitScript only gives the store an unapproved rating.
This online pharmacy sells a wide range of products, both over-the-counter and prescription medicines are available. They have all the normal items you would expect to find in a real-world pharmacy as well as prescription treatments. You will need to provide a prescription or use the free doctor consultation service which is operated by Pharma Doctor.
Payment and Shipping
Drugs can be ordered and paid for using credit and debit cards. The site is secured with a valid SSL certificate and additional measures from Security Metrics.
Shipping is free if you spend over £40 and as long as your medication doesn’t weigh too much. Orders which are received by 4pm will be dispatched the same day and parcels are sent using Royal Mails 48 hour service. Medicine will only be dispatched to UK addresses, however.
Reading through other customers comments prior to deciding to make a purchase, can be a valuable use of your time. It allows you to learn how reliable the business really is and makes your decision, whether to purchase or not, more informed.
However, there is a problem among disreputable online pharmacies with the use of fake customer testimonials. These sites will have their own pages filled with seemingly glowing praise for their business and the quality of service it provides.
When we look for TotalPharmacy.co.uk reviews, we find a testimonial page on the store itself. The reviews we find there are all very positive but are they genuine? These reviews seem to be genuine, though they may have been selective with the comments posted.
To further support these great customer testimonials, feedback for the real-world pharmacy is found on the NHS site. These reviews also give a very good impression of the business, with an overall rating of 5-stars for 10 customer reviews.
This online drugstore is correctly regulated and the business operates a brick and mortar pharmacy as well. This seems like a safe place to purchase medicine, though since they only operate in the UK and the prices could be better, we have to mark them down. We award this online pharmacy 4-stars out of a maximum of five stars.
