As of July the 1st 2021 the rules on VAT for EU sales will be changing. For orders less than £135 (€150) we will display the total price inclusive of the VAT rate.

This lancing device is designed to make obtaining a blood sample as easy and pain free as possible. There is a comfort tip which offers 5 different levels of skin penetration to ensure you can obtain a sufficient blood sample as painlessly as possible:
Important Information About AST Sites other than your fingertip may have fewer nerve endings so obtaining a blood sample from these sites may be less painful. The technique for Alternative Site Testing is different from fingertip testing. Blood glucose results from sites other than your fingertip could be significantly different due to blood glucose levels changing rapidly after a meal, insulin, or exercise.
Consult with your diabetes healthcare professional prior to testing from a site other than your fingertips. Results obtained from sites other than the fingertip may differ significantly as is the case with all blood glucose monitoring systems.
Rapidly changing results are likely to occur after eating, insulin dosing and physical activity. These changes show up in the fingertip more quickly than in Alternative Sites.
Why do you need to know if I am disabled?
People with disabilities do not have to pay VAT on products related to their disability. So if for example you are diabetic and want the lancing device and lancets to check your blood glucose levels then you do not need to pay VAT on this product. Unfortunately most pharmacies and retailers will require you to pay the full price including VAT and will leave you to fill out a long form to claim the VAT back. But if you buy from us, all you need to do is to confirm you have a disability from the drop down menu and you will be charged the price excluding VAT. You must select an option from the drop down menu to get the correct price

*Please note that if you selected “I have a disability related to this product” then you MUST provide us with your home address. This is because you are making a legal declaration which we will supply to HMRC so they need your home address details. If you want the goods delivered to an alternate address such as your work or to a storage facility and you select the non-VAT option, then you will need to send us a message with your home address before we can ship the goods.
