ISO 9001:2008 Accreditation

Health and Care is an ISO 9001:2008 accredited business with BSI, a UKAS accredited issuing body. Our ISO 9001:2008 certificate number is FS 593975. 

Pricing

All pricing displayed on the site is in UK Pounds Sterling (£) and is inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) at the current rate. Prices exclusive of VAT are displayed in brackets beneath the VAT inclusive price for ease of use and calculation.

All payments taken when processing your payment will be in UK Pounds Sterling (£). It is likely that your card issuer will automatically calculate the exchange rate for the transaction and may charge you extra fees when processing an overseas transaction.

Please note that UK Pounds Sterling (£) is a different currency to the Euro (€) and to the US Dollar ($). The UK Pounds Sterling (£) has a different exchange rate to the Euro (€) and the US Dollar ($).

Refunds

Refunds will be processed in UK Pounds Sterling (£). If purchasing outside of the UK or with a non UK issued card, due to fluctuations in exchange rate, the amount that you are refunded may differ from that initially charged. You therefore may be refunded a higher or lower amount in your own currency than you initially paid for the item due to currency fluctuations, as the refund will be processed at a different time to that of the purchase.

We do not charge a currency or exchange rate fee. Any fees will be levied against you by your own card issuer.

Ordering From Us

When you place an order with Health and Care online by using the website and completing checkout on the site, we will send you an order acknowledgement by email to the email address that you have supplied in the checkout process. This email details the products that you have ordered from us and the price for each product. Attached to this email is an invoice in PDF format that can be printed off and retained for your records. We politely request that you check the confirmation email that is sent to you as we will dispatch the goods contained within your order and detailed in that email, that you have ordered (and are contained in the email), as soon as we can. Please inform us immediately if the goods do not match those that you intended to order. Our process is automatic and we do not manually check the items that are ordered. If a mistake has been made at the checkout, either with an incorrect item or incorrect multiple/quantity, it is highly likely that you have added this to your basket in error or multiple times.

We accept an order when we dispatch the goods to you. The point of dispatch is when the sales contract is made even if your payment has been processed immediately.

Health and Care reserve the right to cancel an order for any of the following reasons:

  • Where goods are unavailable.
  • Where there has been a product error, product description error, price error, or other information error.
  • If authorisation of your payment fails or is unavailable.
  • If you do not meet any of the age (minimum age requirements may apply on certain products) or eligibility requirements set out on the Health and Care website including within these terms and conditions.  
  • For any other reason that we deem necessary and/or appropriate in the circumstances.

Availability of Products

Health and Care, its owner, agents and employees, accept no responsibility for losses suffered as a result of unavailability of a product. Where the site states that a product is in stock, this is subject to availability, and is not necessarily an accurate indication of our stock levels. All stock indicators on the site are approximate, and do not necessarily represent current stock levels.

All orders are subject to availability.

If there is a problem with availability of your order, we will contact you by telephone or email as soon as reasonably practicable.

If the goods that you have ordered are not available, we reserve the right to substitute goods of a similar specification and quality.

Cancellation of Orders Prior To 13th June 2014

Consumer (Non Business) 

In accordance with the European Consumer Distance Selling Regulations, you will find your rights in relation to cancelling your order here.

Health and Care offer a 7 day period of cancellation. You may cancel your order within 7 days of receiving the product(s). The 7 days starts to run on the day after you receive the goods. Goods must be returned to us in the same condition that they arrived. The goods must have been looked after reasonably.

Health and Care offer an extended returns policy of a further 7 days to return your item. This is an additional 7 days on top of the 7 days provided by the European Consumer Distance Selling Regulations. Goods that you may wish to return in this second period of 7 days must be in a perfect condition, sealed and still in their original packaging, fit for resale.

For the sake of clarity, you therefore have a total of 14 days from the date that you receive your item to cancel your order with Health and Care. The first 7 days require you to take reasonable care of the item and return the item in the same condition as you received it. Items that you inform Health and Care that you would like to return in the period 8 to 14 days after receiving the item must be returned in a perfect condition, fit for resale.

Items must be in a resellable state, in original packaging with all included literature, free from stains, free from smells (including tobacco), free from hair (human and/or animal), free from marks, free from damp, liquid or residue on the product itself, its packaging and its literature.

You must inform Health and Care of your cancellation by email or letter. Informing Health and Care of your order cancellation by telephone is not sufficient. If informing Health and Care by letter, the cancellation is effective on the date of posting. If informing Health and Care by email, cancellation is deemed to have been conveyed when the email is sent. Health and Care ask that you keep a receipt of postage of your cancellation notice or a confirmation of sending a cancellation email.

If goods are made specifically for you as a customer, personalised or made to your specifications or fit, Health and Care will not accept cancellation of your order.

Some of our products are excluded from this cancellation policy for hygiene reasons (items deemed perishable that lose their entire value when opened due to the risk of contamination). These products include the Nicocig, Nicocig refills, Salitair, Salitair refills, DRI Sleeper Excel, Pain Doctor, products in our Sexual range, all bath lifts, all incontinence products and all toileting products including the Bio Bidet Electronic Toilet Seats. This list is not exhaustive.

If you cancel your order, as a consumer you are under a duty under the DSRs to retain and take reasonable care of the goods throughout the cancellation period.

Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 in force from 13th June 2014 onwards

By using this website and/or committing to a purchase on this website, or with Health and Care, you are agreeing that the terms and conditions of the sale are being presented to you in a form other than in paper form, and you agree that these terms and conditions are to be presented to you in this electronic form.

You also agree and accept that the model cancellation form has been provided and can be accessed by using the link below.

Consumers are legally entitled to a cooling off period (the time you take to cancel your contract) of 14 days.

Prior to the dispatch of your item(s), you are entitled to withdraw your offer at any time from the moment you submit your order until the moment the contract is concluded.

An exception to this contract conclusion occurs where personalised goods or customised goods are ordered. In this case, the customisation or personalisation will be confirmed prior to manufacture. At the point that the manufacture of such goods is initiated, the contract will be concluded.

The calculation of the 14 days includes all days (working or otherwise) from Monday to Friday.

The cancellation or cooling off period begins to run depending upon when you receive your goods. 

Where goods are delivered in one delivery, the end of the cooling off period is 14 days after the day on which the goods came into your physical possession.

Where you have ordered multiple goods in one order but the goods are delivered on different days, the end of the cooling off period is 14 days after the day on which the last good came into your physical possession.

Where you have ordered goods consisting of multiple parts delivered on different days, the end of the cooling off period is 14 days after the day on which the last of the pieces came into your physical possession.

Where you are receiving a regular delivery of goods during a defined period of more than one day, the cooling off period ends 14 days after the day on which the first of the goods came into your possession.

You must inform us of your wish to cancel within this period. If you declare that you would like to cancel your order outside of this cooling off period, you will be not be able to return your goods.

Exercising your Right To Cancel

You must inform us of your wish to cancel by using a clear statement. You are able to convey your wish to cancel to us by using the following methods; send an email to helpdesk@healthandcare.co.uk, send a letter to Health and Care, Unit 6, Union Court, Union Road, London, SW4 6JP, fax us on 020 7720 7489 or call our customer care team on 020 7720 2266.

Cancellation Form

Losing Your Right To Cancel

You will lose your right to cancel where you fail to cancel the contract within the appropriate timescale as stated above, or where you fail to return the goods within the appropriate timescale following legitimate cancellation.

Returning Your Goods

Once you have exercised your right to cancel, you are under a duty to send back the goods to the following address:

Returns Department
Health and Care
Unit 6, Union Court
Union Road
London
SW4 6JP

You must not delay in returning your goods to us. In any event, you must send the goods back not later than 14 days after the day on which you inform us of your wish to cancel.

Return Costs

You will bear the costs of returning the item(s) to us. No refund will be made of your return costs. As we do not charge for delivery on the outward leg of the delivery, we will not refund any postage costs as none have been incurred in the delivery of the item.

Where you have opted for an expedited delivery method, or a postage upgrade to a faster, paid service, this will not be refunded. Our standard delivery is free of charge.

Any costs associated with the return of your item(s) will be paid by you and will not be refunded.

Where large items have been ordered and you feel that it will be difficult in the circumstances to arrange for a delivery back to us, we may be able to offer a collection service to assist you. This is a paid service and is normally approximately £20. In order to utilise this service, please email or telephone us to agree the exact costs. These costs will not be refundable.

Returning oversized items by courier yourself depends on the weight and dimensions of the package, and can be costly. The maximum costs that you are likely to have to pay for the return of an oversized item is £100 if using an independent courier or pallet company.

Refunds

We will refund you without undue delay, but in any case no later than the end of 14 days after the day on which we received the goods back. If you supply us with evidence of having sent the goods back before we have received them, then we will refund you within 14 days from the day after the day on which we receive that evidence.

We will refund you any amount to be refunded onto the card or by the payment method that you used to place the order, unless expressly agreed otherwise.

Our Right To Compensation For Diminished Value of Goods

Please note that we have a right to recover an amount from you for a loss of value of the goods as a result of handling goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. 

This compensation will be deducted from the amount that you initially paid for the goods. If this is not possible, this amount of compensation must be paid by you to us.

Exceptions to the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013

If goods are made specifically for you as a customer, personalised or made to your specifications or fit, Health and Care will not accept your request to exchange or to cancel your order.

Some of our products are excluded from this exchange policy for hygiene reasons (items deemed perishable that lose their entire value when opened due to the risk of contamination). These products include the Nicocig, Nicocig refills, Salitair, Salitair refills, DRI Sleeper Excel, Pain Doctor, products in our Sexual range and all bath lifts. This list is not exhaustive. As a general rule, toilet related, incontinence related and bath or shower related products are excluded from our exchange and refund policy. Also items that are designed to be used internally in the body, mouth or used by placing in the mouth, are excluded from our returns policy. Any item designed to be used with open or fresh wounds is also excluded from our returns policy and will not be returnable on grounds of hygiene.

Returns Authorisation

When informing Health and Care of your wish to return an item, it is advisable to obtain a returns authorisation number from Health and Care. Any goods that are returned without a returns authorisation number may take longer to process. This may delay the refund or exchange of the product. Please include your returns authorisation number on a small note or correspondence within the package of the returned item along with your address and a contact telephone number. Please also include the reason for returning the goods.

Refund

We will not refund any cost of returning the goods to us. The cost of returning the goods will not be refunded. You must pay for all postage and packaging costs when returning goods to us.

If you fail to return the goods, or attempt to charge the cost of returning the goods to us, we will charge you the direct cost to us of the return of goods, even if we have already processed a refund for any reason. We will not charge you an administration charge.

If you cancel an order for any reason, you must return the goods to us. You must return the goods as soon as possible. If you do not return the goods within 14 days from the day of your cancellation, we will arrange for collection of the goods, and will charge you for the cost of this collection. If you do not make the goods available for collection within 30 days of your cancellation, or do not return the goods within 30 days of cancellation, you will be deemed to have repurchased the item. You will then fall outside of the Health and Care returns policy and will be unable to return the goods. In this respect, a new sales contract will be deemed to have been created and you will be charged for the goods purchased at the price that you initially purchased the goods at (if a refund has been processed) or not refunded if a refund has not been processed. Health and Care reserve the right to charge you the carriage costs of returning the item back to you..

We recommend that you return the goods by Royal Mail special delivery or insured delivery as Health and Care, its agents and/or representatives, do not accept liability for goods damaged or lost in transit from you to our headquarters. We always recommend that you obtain and keep a certificate or proof of posting. Goods are sent back to us at your own risk until we receive them. Goods that have gone missing or have become lost in the postal system before reaching us are not our responsibility. The contract that you have made when returning the goods is between you and the service provider that you have chosen to use. We are not a party to this contract of service and cannot therefore make a claim on your behalf. The burden of any loss of goods must be borne by you.

All returns should be sent to:

Health and Care,
Unit 6, Union Court,
Union Road,
London,
SW4 6JP.

Complaints

At Health and Care, all processes and procedures exist to ensure complete customer satisfaction. We always strive to ensure that everything runs smoothly with your order. However, if you feel that we have let you down and you would like to complain about an element of our service, a product, or anything that you feel has not met with your expectations, you can call us on 020 7720 2266, email us at helpdesk@healthandcare.co.uk, or write to us at Health and Care, Unit 6, Union Court, Union Road, London, SW4 6JP. A member of our team will either talk to you about the issue or respond personally to your correspondence as soon as they can.

Our Legal Duty

We are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with the contract.

Payment

Payment will be taken by credit or debit card, or by Paypal, at the time of ordering.

Delivery

Delivery will take place by Royal Mail Post, UPS courier, DPD courier or any other courier or postal method deemed suitable for the weight, size and nature of the product. Delivery will take place as soon as is practicable, and in any event, we will strive to deliver your item(s) within 30 days.

Please not that over 90% of orders are delivered the next day.

Exchanges

In the event of you wishing to return the item(s) that you have purchased for an exchange, the same return period applies as above.

For the sake of clarity, you therefore have a total of 14 days from the date that you receive your item to inform us of your wish to return your item to exchange this item.

Where goods are delivered in one delivery, you can exchange your item(s) by letting us know up to 14 days after the day on which the goods came into your physical possession.

Where you have ordered multiple goods in one order but the goods are delivered on different days, you can exchange your item(s) by letting us know up to 14 days after the day on which the last good came into your physical possession.

Where you have ordered goods consisting of multiple parts delivered on different days, you can exchange your item(s) by letting us know up to 14 days after the day on which the last of the pieces came into your physical possession.

Where you are receiving a regular delivery of goods during a defined period of more than one day, you can exchange your item(s) by letting us know up to 14 days after the day on which the first of the goods came into your possession.

You must inform us of your wish to cancel within this period. If you declare that you would like to cancel your order outside of these periods, you will be not be able to exchange your goods.

You must inform Health and Care of your wish to exchange the item(s) by email, letter or telephone. If informing Health and Care by letter, the request to exchange is effective on the date of posting. If informing Health and Care by email, the request to exchange is deemed to have been conveyed when the email is sent. Health and Care ask that you keep a receipt of postage of your exchange request notice or a confirmation of sending an exchange request email.

If goods are made specifically for you as a customer, personalised or made to your specifications or fit, Health and Care will not accept your request to exchange or to cancel your order.

Some of our products are excluded from this exchange policy for hygiene reasons (items deemed perishable that lose their entire value when opened due to the risk of contamination). These products include the Nicocig, Nicocig refills, Salitair, Salitair refills, DRI Sleeper Excel, Pain Doctor, products in our Sexual range and all bath lifts. This list is not exhaustive. As a general rule, toilet related, incontinence related and bath or shower related products are excluded from our exchange and refund policy. Also items that are designed to be used internally in the body, mouth or used by placing in the mouth, are excluded from our returns policy. Any item designed to be used with open or fresh wounds is also excluded from our returns policy and will not be returnable on grounds of hygiene.

Please note, as with cancellations of your order, with exchanges we have a right to recover an amount from you for a loss of value of the goods as a result of handling goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. 

This compensation will be deducted from the amount that you initially paid for the goods. If this is not possible, this amount of compensation must be paid by you to us. 

Where a balance is required to release the exchanged goods, we will contact you to take an extra payment or discuss whether you would like to continue with the exchange.

Faulty Item

If the item you received is faulty, please contact our customer care team either by email or on 020 7720 2266. Please state or include your order number, name address, product details and your reason for return on any correspondence or in any communication. Please also state whether you require a refund (if the item is faulty within 14 days of receipt and is reported to us in that timeframe) or a replacement for your faulty product. We will then explain to you the returns process. Refunds cannot be processed if the fault has been caused, created or is a result of your misuse. 

Payment

Health and Care accept the following methods of payment: Visa, Visa Debit, Delta, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo.

Security of Payment

Our payment pages use 256-bit encryption enabled technology supplied to us by Thawte and ensures that information is kept private.

Delivery

Delivery of your product(s) will be made to the address that you provide in the 'address' field in the order process. Where details provided for the delivery address are supplied by you, and these details are incorrect or incomplete, Health and Care, its agents and/or representatives are not liable for any products that you do not receive. Further to this, we are not liable for any consequential losses resulting from non-delivery of your item(s).

We will deliver to the address that you have supplied to us for delivery. The delivery address will be confirmed to you by email immediately upon completing your purchase. This confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you have provided in the checkout process. We would always advise checking your spam or junk mail folder as some Health and Care emails may be filtered by your email service provider due to the "spam-heavy" content of our email address (helpdesk@healthandcare.co.uk). We will not be held responsible if an email has not been read that you have received in the spam folder. It is your duty to maintain your own email account. We cannot be held accountable if you have failed to check the details that we have sent to you but may not be in your usual inbox folder.

We have the ability to resend your order confirmation details if not received immediately. Please contact our Helpdesk if you wish the confirmation email to be resent to you.

If we have sent an item out to an address that you have provided and was stated in the confirmation email, but you failed to check this and inform Health and Care of your mistake, we will not refund your item. We will not offer an exchange of an item. We will not offer a credit note. We will not be held accountable for your error, nor will we offer you compensation.

Our order process provides the facility to specify a delivery address different to your billing address. This allows you to arrange for delivery of goods to friends, family or a workplace.

The delivery address does not therefore need to be the same as the address that your debit or credit card is registered.

Delivery in most instances is made by Royal Mail First Class delivery. For larger items or valuable items, a courier, signed for or Royal Mail Special Delivery may be used.

Overseas orders are processed by courier, normally UPS. Delivery expectation for European deliveries is normally 2 to 5 working days.

In the event of a parcel going missing, we cannot send out a replacement item, or offer a full refund until a claim has been accepted and processed by Royal Mail or our chosen courier. In the event of a parcel going missing, the time for a full claim to be processed is usually 21 days, although this may be longer.

In the event of damage or breakage, Health and Care may ask you to provide a detailed report and supply images for the purpose of making a claim.

Health and Care accept no responsibility where proof of delivery has indicated that a 'you were out' card has been left by the Royal Mail (or similar) and you have subsequently not picked up the item.

Normal Working Hours

The Health and Care offices are open between the hours of 9.00am to 5.00pm GMT, Monday to Friday. 

Service Access

While we endeavour to ensure that this Website is normally available 24 hours a day, we will not be liable if for any reason this Website is unavailable at any time or for any period, and we will not be liable if you cannot reach our sales, customer care or information team by telephone or email.

Access to this Website may be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance, repair or for any reasons that may be outside the control of any Health and Care agent and/or representative.

Overseas Access

All content on the Health and Care website is intended to meet United Kingdom guidelines. We cannot and will not promise that materials available and viewable on our website outside of the United Kingdom, or available to purchase outside of the United Kingdom, are appropriate within a territory outside of the United Kingdom. You are prohibited from accessing this website where viewing information or obtaining such products is illegal or unlawful.

If you do choose to access information, images and content on this website, you do so at your own risk and you are fully responsible for your compliance with local laws and regulations. 

General

You may not assign, sub-licence or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms.

If any provision of these terms and conditions is found by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. These remaining provisions shall continue to have full force and effect.

Only parties to these terms and conditions may seek to enforce them. Nothing in these terms and conditions is intended as granting persons who are not parties to these terms and/or contractual provisions, any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. 

Installation

Some products sold by Health and Care will require installation at your premises. We advise that you do not schedule installation works until you have received, inspected and assessed your goods for suitability. Where installation is necessary, we advice you to use a trained, qualified professional with accreditation and authority to carry out the works to all legal, moral and regulatory standards. 

Jurisdiction

The jurisdiction for any claims, actions or legal processes is the United Kingdom in United Kingdom courts. The law that governs this contract is that of the United Kingdom.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment.  The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

Health and Care is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.  

For example, if a customer bought a new electronic cigarette from us we would accept their old electronic cigarette and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. 

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin. 

Google Checkout

Any details that we capture with reference to physical or email addresses will not be sold or rented to other businesses. Google Checkout buyers can remove their physical addresses from our direct marketing mailing list at any time. We will remove these details from our marketing within 90 days of receiving the request either by telephone or by emailing helpdesk@healthandcare.co.uk and placing "Google Checkout Details Removal" in the subject line of the email.

Free Gifts

Health and Care may offer a free gift from time to time with purchases over a certain amount. Where the promotion is for orders over £60, this should be construed as meaning that orders of the value £60.01 and over will qualify for a free gift. Orders of £60.00 or under will not be eligible for a promotional gift. Promotions on the website www.healthandcare.co.uk are entirely at the discretion of Health and Care, and may be withdrawn or denied for any reason. Health and Care may refuse to offer or send a free gift at their discretion where they feel that the promotion is being abused or the good faith of Health and Care is otherwise being manipulated or abused. 

Where a purchase of £60.01 or over has been made, and a free gift issued/sent, and subsequently the order is cancelled or returned, either in its entirety or partially, where the value of the non-returned or non-refunded item drops below £60.01, you must return the free gift in order to receive a full refund. Health and Care reserve the right to deduct the value of the free gift (its selling price on www.healthandcare.co.uk at the time of purchasing the goods entitling you to the free gift) from the refundable amount. Free gifts are only available while stocks last. Health and Care may choose at their discretion to send out a similar free gift to that advertised. This choice remains at the discretion of Health and Care at all times, but Health and Care will send out the advertised free gift whenever this is available.

Contact From 3rd Parties

Health and Care do not rent or sell customer email details or telephone numbers to third party businesses. Health and Care does work with Ekomi, the reviews website, and provides from time to time, the email addresses of customers who have purchased on Health and Care to Ekomi to request a review of Health and Care's service and products. Ekomi will only contact a customer once at the most by email to request a review of Health and Care and their service. Your email address will not be passed on to other 3rd parties by Ekomi. If you wish to unsubscribe from this service at any time, please email helpdesk@healthandcare.co.uk with the subject line : "Unsubscribe from Ekomi Reviews".

Overseas Delivery (Europe and Worldwide)

Selected Health and Care products are available for overseas delivery.

Please note that the normal delivery time for orders placed online is 2 to 5 working days normally by UPS courier.

Payment from Overseas

Please note that your card payment will be processed in GBP Sterling and your receipt will show GBP Sterling prices. If your card is held in a different currency, your card issuer will charge you the currency exchange rate applicable that day. The exact exchange rate at the time of ordering should be displayed on your bank statement.

Refunds to Overseas Cards

Please note that any refund will be made in GBP Sterling (our trading currency) and your card issuer will refund you using the Exchange Rate that is in use for that day and this could be different to the original rate that you were charged when making your payment. Your card issuer may also levy a currency conversion charge and/or a transaction fee, and this may not be reversed in the event of any refund or order cancellation. This means that your refund could be slightly more or less than you have originally paid and we cannot and will not be held responsible nor accountable for this difference.

All pricing displayed on the site is in UK Pounds Sterling (£) and is inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) at the current rate. Prices exclusive of VAT are displayed in brackets beneath the VAT inclusive price for ease of use and calculation.

All payments taken when processing your payment will be in UK Pounds Sterling (£). It is likely that your card issuer will automatically calculate the exchange rate for the transaction and may charge you extra fees when processing an overseas transaction.

Please note that UK Pounds Sterling (£) is a different currency to the Euro (€) and to the US Dollar ($). The UK Pounds Sterling (£) has a different exchange rate to the Euro (€) and the US Dollar ($). 

Discounts And Special Offers

Where you have purchased an item or items under a special offer (eg Save 10% when you purchase 2 or more of this product), the discount will be applied to the basket at the checkout procedure, and will be applicable where you purchase and keep the products that enable you to qualify for the discount.

If you return a product to us for a refund that was part of the discount or special offer, but retain other qualifying products, we will refund the amount of the item that you have returned minus the amount that you saved by qualifying for the discount on the product.

For clarity, here is a worked example. If you purchase two items for £30 each, qualifying you for a discount of 10% when you order two or more of these products, a £6 discount will be applied at the checkout (total order value of £60, 10% of which is a £6 saving). You will therefore pay £54. If you were to return one of those items for a refund, we will refund you £24 as you will now no longer qualify for the discount as you have returned one of the products for a refund. In effect, you have purchased and retained only one product, of which the normal buy price is £30. We will refund £24 to you (£54 initial purchase price minus the £30 cost of purchasing a single product, that you have retained). You will therefore be refunded the amount that corresponds with only purchasing one product and therefore not qualifying for the discount.

Where products are returned for a refund, or for an exchange to a non-qualifying product, you will no longer be eligible for the discount or special offer and we will only refund or exchange to the value that puts you back into the position that you would have been in had you not initially purchased the number of qualifying products, or type of qualifying products, to obtain a discount or offer.

Where a free gift is provided when purchasing a qualifying product, or qualifying products (where a multiple purchase is required to qualify for the free gift), and that product or those products are returned for a refund or exchanged to a non-qualifying product, the free gift must be returned along with the qualifying product(s) and cannot be retained as the free gift is provided pursuant to and reliant upon you purchasing the qualifying product(s) and retaining the aforementioned qualifying product(s). Where you do not return the free gift, we reserve the right to charge you or withhold from the refund of the returned item the price of the item that constitutes the free gift. Where the free gift is priced on our website, we will deduct or charge the price of the item as appearing on our website. Where no price is quoted on our website for the item constituting the free gift, we will use the recommended retail price (RRP) of the product.

Business To Business Transactions

This is an exclusion clause:

Health and Care limits its liability in business to business transactions wholly and entirely as the law permits, including the limitation of liability for loss of profits and for any indirect or consequential losses that may be incurred by the purchaser other than Health and Care.

Health and Care limits its liability in terms of loss of profit, loss of revenue, repair costs, maintenance costs, removal costs, collection costs, installation costs, works costs, labour, transportation, freight, postage, collection, delivery and any other costs whether directly or indirectly incurred by the wronged party.  

Business To Business Restocking Fees

Where an order has been placed by a business and that business or representative thereof wishes to return a product within Health and Care's returns policy, Health and Care reserves a right in its absolute discretion to charge a 20% restocking fee for the returned product.

The same exceptions of non returnable products remain the same. For example, where a product is non returnable on hygiene grounds, this product will remain non returnable.

Pro-Forma Invoices

In the event that a pro-forma invoice is required, Health and Care reserves the right, in the absence of full details from the customer, to raise a pro-forma invoice on the assumption of a standard mainland UK delivery address only, and may levy a delivery charge if it later transpires that delivery is to a non UK delivery address, highland, island, in any other way overseas, non UK mainland or restricted with special delivery requirement.

Age Verification and Identity Verification

You consent that the information you provide to us via the website or otherwise may be disclosed to a credit reference agency for the purpose of verifying identity and that the credit reference agency may keep a record of that information. This measure is necessary in order to ensure that we do not send age restricted items to persons under the age of 18, and may be used as part of our ongoing commitment to maintain a high level of security and fraud prevention.
