So pleased to be able to buy Paracetamol in a sensible amount. I am prescribed Paracetamol but I purchase my own because my surgery asked if we were able to afford to buy our own could we so that is what I do. I couldn’t do this without Home Health the service is good with fast delivery and so easy to use . I would definitely recommend Home Health to others. Joan Peach.

At last a company that sells a larger quantity of paracetamol! As a previous customer has said my surgery also asked if we were able to afford to buy our own could we. Buying them in a larger quantity stops the ‘difficult’ journey for me walking to the chemist. Will certainly recommend.

Excellant service, took these off my prescription due to cost to nhs, but being able to buy in sufficient quantity has become a problem in current times. Found this company and decided to give them a try. So pleased I did as my problem of getting sufficient has now been resolved. Will continue to use this company in the future and have already recommended to family and friends who have found themselves in a similar situation.

Whilst £1.23 a box is expensive for paracetamol, the delivery was next day and it was peace of mind they were delivered to me so I didn’t have to go out.
