A great question! Nicotine Replacement Therapy will be delivered to you via Royal Mail. Bare in mind however, it will need to be signed for so make sure you are able to answer the door.
For those who opt for prescription medication; we are working closely with GP surgeries and will send a prescription request directly to them. You will then receive your prescription based on your preferences with your GP surgery.
