2. Our Services and how you should use our Services

2.1    The Polypill Prevention Programme - What we do

  • The Polypill Prevention Programme includes a daily preventive medication that can be taken to reduce the risk of a heart attack or a stroke.

  • You can receive the preventive medication (and join the Polypill Prevention Programme) via our website following a doctor's assessment (which is completed online before a prescription can be issued).

  • We provide follow-up medical advice to address any side effects and other issues arising from the medication. Where you agree, we keep your GP informed.

2.2    The Polypill Prevention Programme - How it works

  • When you visit our website for the first time you will be required to register during the process before submitting an assessment.

  • Once you have submitted the assessment a binding contract is formed between you and us.  We will send you an email confirmation that you have successfully registered with polypill.com and that we have received your assessment. Our doctors will review the assessment and, provided that you are eligible to join the Polypill Prevention Programme and receive the preventive medication you will be able to have a preventive medication prescribed for you.

  • Once you have submitted an assessment this will be reviewed by a doctor to assess whether you are eligible to join the Polypill Prevention Programme.

  • Once you have clicked the order button a binding contract is formed between you and us.  Our doctors will review the further assessment and, provided that you are still eligible to join the Polypill Prevention Programme, prescribe the preventive medication to you. You accept that once you have submitted the further assessment and clicked the order button you can no longer cancel this service. This is because our doctors will commence providing the service to you from the moment you order the service.

  • All our medical assessments have been carefully prepared and are compliant with medical best practice.

  • You cannot submit an assessment and receive the preventive medication without first registering on our website.  By registering on our website, you will create a secure online electronic patient record which will contain the following information:  (i) copy of these Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy which you clicked and accepted; (ii) messages you receive from us; (iii) treatments and advice you receive; (iv) your personal details; (v) your settings; (vi) your orders.
