Returns, Refunds & Replacements
We completely understand that sometimes you would like to return an item. We aim to make this as easy & as seamless as possible. We also strive to abide by the Consumer Rights Act (2015).
Once payment is received by Slim Transformation, your order is sent to one of our pharmacists. A prescription is then written specifically for you. Once the medication is dispensed (e.g. sent out to you) by the pharmacy, there cannot be any returns if you simply change your mind about your order or if you are dissatisfied once you have started the medication (e.g. you're unhappy with the amount of weight you have lost). We do not 100% guarantee weight loss for every person, as discussed at consultation, as noted on our website and on your health form.
Our products are Prescription Only Medications and, once dispensed, any returned medication must be destroyed by a pharmacist within 30 days at a cost. It is illegal for you or for us to re-sell a prescribed medication.
However, there are exceptions in which returns can apply:
Any damage or discrepancies with your product/package must be raised with us within 12 hours of your item being received/delivered/signed for.
Any defects must be identified and highlighted within 48 hours of receipt of your package (the time starts from the minute the package is signed for).
If a concern, fault or issue arises prior to receipt of your package and you no longer want your product, you must inform us in writing and refuse acceptance of delivery. This will ensure the product is safely sent back to the pharmacy, whilst we address the issue and liaise with you on a suitable remedy. This will not guarantee you a refund or replacement - this will be down to our discretion.
Any issues raised after these time frames may not be able to be investigated or remedied.
Due to this being a prescription-only medication, we are under the clock to address any issues with our pharmacy or the manufacturer as soon as possible within their own Returns Policy, which is beyond our control.
Damaged or Defective Goods
If your item arrives damaged or defective, we may be able to initiate our Returns Process if the item is found to be damaged or defective. If your product has formally breached the cold chain, we will liaise with you regarding this. The cold chain is broken if the medication is exposed to temperatures beyond its storage range or you use the pen for the first time. For delivery, the cold chain is kept for up to 72 hours via secure temperature controlled packaging from the pharmacy.
Noticeable damage to the outer packaging, which has caused damage to the product itself
Damage to the blister packaging or notable damage to the pens
Defective goods include;
Tablets which have arrived broken or missing
Pens which do not calibrate or administer the medication correctly
Pens which are cracked or leaking or visibly damaged
The liquid within the pens is cloudy or lumpy
A defective medicated pen will need to be sent for investigation to the manufacturer, Novo Nordisk. We will require the type of medication, the batch/LOT number, the expiry date and the defect. We will then submit this information to Novo Nordisk who will then send you a pre-paid envelope for you to send them the pen for investigation.
Our Returns Process
If a return is agreed between the customer & Slim Transformation, all items sent to the customer must be returned within 30 days of receipt of the damaged goods (e.g. the medication, any other medications, sharps bins etc).
However, if you have purchased multiple items & wish to only return one defective item, Slim Transformation may exercise discretion on sending back only the damaged or defective items.
If required, an investigation will take place to ascertain the full facts, which may include third parties (e.g. the manufacturer of the product, the dispensing pharmacy, any delivery agents used etc).
We will aim to complete our own internal investigation within 28 working days, however please be advised that the timeframe of investigation can be much longer if we have to involve any third parties (e.g. the manufacturer of the product, the dispensing pharmacy, any delivery agents used etc) may take longer. For example, the manufacturer Novo Nordisk can take up to 75 days to investigate a reported defect or damaged item. This is beyond our control and will always make you aware of any updates we receive.
How will we handle your returned item?
If an item is damaged or defective, we or the manufacturer will pay the costs associated with returning the item. You will either receive a pre-paid envelope from the manufacturer or you as the customer will pay the return postage up front and then send Slim Transformation proof of postage, which must display the cost of posting the item(s) back.
If the investigation finds that the item(s) was indeed damaged or is defective at no fault of the customer, Slim Transformation will offer you:
A full refund of the product cost & the return postage cost; or
A replacement product & a refund of the return postage cost.
If, however, the investigation finds that the item(s) has been returned inappropriately, there is no defect or damage, or the item(s) were intentionally damaged beyond our control, Slim Transformation will not provide a refund or pay for the return postage.
Processing a Replacement
If a replacement is agreed by both parties, we aim to dispense & ship a replacement within 3 working days from the day that the replacement is formally agreed.
Processing a Refund
If a refund is processed, we aim to process a refund within 3 working days to the original payment method used by the customer. We do not offer credit notes nor do we offer a refund by any other means except the customer's original payment method.
How will we correspond?
All correspondence regarding a return, refund or replacement MUST be made in writing to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Whilst we accept phone calls to discuss things, we will always require an email for formality and to send to the manufacturer or pharmacy.
