EU-wide logo to protect patients from falsified medicines

Patients in the European Union (EU) can now easily identify legally operating online medicine retailers. To help them identify trustworthy sites, an EU-wide logo will appear on the websites of online retailers that are registered in an EU Member State.

Weldricks Pharmacy was one of the first online pharmacies in the country to be issued with a logo which can be found at the footer of every page on our site. This logo verifies that we have been approved to sell General sale, Pharmacy only and Prescription only medicines.

When buying medicines online, consumers must be aware that unless they buy from legally-operating online medicine suppliers, they run the risk of buying falsified medicines, which are usually ineffective, substandard and dangerous.
