In the United Kingdom, there are strict legal controls on the retail sale, supply and advertisement of medicinal products. Specifically, in relation to Prescription Only Medicines, these must be legally sold or supplied at registered pharmacy premises by, or under the supervision of, a pharmacist, in accordance with a prescription given by an appropriate practitioner. An appropriate practitioner includes a European Economic Area registered healthcare provider. These legal controls apply equally to medicines sold or supplied via internet or e-mail transactions.
