If a return is made under the above circumstances, Universal Medical ID UK can send a replacement item with the correct specification. A refund can also be made in lieu of a return if a customer prefers or if replacement is not possible. Refunds of the purchase amount will be made via your original payment method or another form of electronic payment.

  • Delivered to you in faulty condition or is not fit for purpose
  • Not matching the description or specification as seen on the Universal Medical ID website
