We will set up the service that works best for you, including:
We aim to deliver your order on a date we agree with you in advance. This will normally be within two days of receiving a valid prescription. In the case of an emergency, we will endeavour to deliver earlier than this, with agreement from your healthcare professional or GP.
To help us in these cases please make sure you order in good time. This is especially important in the periods leading up to bank holidays.
If you require appliance customisation we will take specific cutting instructions and templates. Once we have this you do not need to provide the information every time you place an order. However, if things have changed you can provide information when you place an order.

Knowing who to complain to can seem confusing, especially if more than one organisation is involved. If you need help, you could get information from your local Healthwatch or from an NHS complaints advocate. Everyone who provides an NHS service in England must have their own complaints procedure. You can often find information in waiting rooms, at reception, on the service provider’s website, or by asking a member of staff.
You can either complain to the NHS service provider directly – such as a GP, a dentist surgery, or a hospital – or to the commissioner of the services, which is the body that pays for the NHS services you use. You cannot apply to both. See the information below on How to find the commissioner.
In the event of a complaint about more than one organisation – perhaps a complaint that includes issues about your GP, local hospital and ambulance service – you’ll only need to make one complaint. The organisation that receives your complaint must then co-operate with the others to ensure you receive a coordinated response.
Contact NHS England for complaints about primary care services (GPs, dentists, opticians or pharmacists). NHS England also commissions military health services and some other specialised services. To contact NHS England:
For more detailed information, visit NHS England’s website.
Contact your local clinical commissioning group (CCG) for complaints about secondary care, such as hospital care, mental health services, out-of-hours services, NHS 111 and community services – district nursing, for example.
Every CCG will have its own complaints procedure, which is often displayed on its website. You can find contact details for CCGs on this site.
