An important message from Express Chemist

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.
