All medicine dispensed from our community pharmacy is the same medicine you would get if you were to walk into a pharmacy anywhere in the UK. The regulating body for licensing medicine to be sold in the UK is MHRA.

The doctors at Dr Felix must act in your best interests at all times, by law.

Non-regulated online clinics

Non-regulated websites may supply fake medicine. This medicine can be ineffective or dangerous. People receiving prescription medicine should be given accurate medical information and health professionals are legally and morally obliged to deliver effective advice and treatment. Please be aware of what you are taking and it is suitable for your condition. Please look for a GMC registration number of the GP providing your prescription and GPhC internet pharmacy logo to ensure the medicines dispensed are genuine from a registered UK pharmacy.

Regulation

England & Wales

Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the body that regulates any independent clinics offering medical advice and treatment including online doctor services such as DrEd and DrThom based in England & Wales. These websites must adhere to ‘the essential standards‘ operated by the Care Quality Commission. If you are using an online doctor and pharmacy registered in England & Wales and have any queries please contact the CQC.

Scotland

Online doctor services registered in Scotland are not regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC equivalent body in Scotland is the Healthcare Improvement Scotland and the Care Inspectorate which regulate independent healthcare services. This was previously the remit of the Care Commission. As it stands the Care Inspectorate or H.I.S remit does not cover online GP services registered in Scotland; it may do so in the future and Dr Felix would be delighted to prove our exceptional work ethos. Although there is no official regulation of online clinics registered in Scotland, Dr Felix still adheres to professional standards dictated by the CQC which are as follows:

  • Standards of treating people with respect and involving them in their care.
  • Standards of providing care, treatment and support that meets people’s needs.
  • Standards of caring for people safely and protecting them from harm.
  • Standards of complying with Data Protection Act and keeping your details confidential and safe.
  • Dr Felix allows customer feedback and deals with complaints in an efficient manner. We operate a continuous improvement policy and welcome reviews from patients and professional bodies.
