These terms and conditions along with our Privacy Policy (together, the “Terms”) apply throughout our website and during any telephone call or written correspondence between you and us.

They are not a clinical diagnosis. Blood tests alone should never replace a proper medical investigation and/or a doctor’s advice. Our comments are based solely on the results in relation to what are considered normal ranges. This information is very likely not going to be enough to understand your overall health or a specific condition you may be wondering about. If you have any concerns at all regarding any aspect of your health or your test results you should discuss them directly with your GP or a doctor.

Based on the results of your test(s) we may advise that you purchase a follow-up test or that you see your GP for further investigation or both. You agree that you are solely responsible for acting on such guidance and that Health First Surrey accepts no liability if you choose not to do so.

You provide this information on the test request form included in your box.

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by any act or event beyond our reasonable control.

If an event outside our control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:

  • we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
  • our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside our control. Where the event outside our control affects our delivery of testing kits to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you once the event outside our control is over.

We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under the Terms.

This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.

Each of the paragraphs of the Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under the Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

Please note that the Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
