I’ve used Zava a number of times over the years, and their service has always been excellent. Good communications and prompt delivery. Highly recommended.

I can't fault this service. I first turned to Zava when my doctor decided to halve my regular asthma medication to cut costs, leaving me with 1 inhaler every 2 months which was nowhere near enough. Zava were invaluable a second time when I needed a repeat prescription for my contraceptive pill. My doctor made it near impossible to obtain my prescription, after I said I had no intentions of wearing a pointless face muzzle/visor to go in to the surgery to have my BP checked. I was surprised to find I could buy my pill online, and even doubted if they could be genuine, but within a couple of days my order from Zava arrived. Yes, I had to pay £19 for pills my doctor is supposed to prescribe for free, but I'm happy. Thanks Zava team 👍🏻
