How medicines are prescribed to you
• In Nigeria, services are provided by qualified doctors registered with the Nigerian Medical Association who are permitted to prescribe medicines without meeting the patient face to face.
• The Nigerian Medical Association registration number of all SIGNALADOC doctors, past or present, can be supplied upon request.

• Prescriptions provided will be provided by reputable and licensed pharmacists.
• Prescription will incur the cost of the medicine(s) prescribed. This price is set by the pharmacy and is independent of any charges set by SIGNALADOC. The patient is under no obligation to purchase their medicine from any particular pharmacy.
• The App may enable you to request that we send your prescription to a pharmacy near to you for you to collect during normal opening hours, or request that one of our affiliates fulfil the prescription and deliver the prescribed articles to you.
• If you choose to have your prescription sent to a pharmacy that is near to your location, we will make reasonable attempts to contact that pharmacy and have the prescription sent to the chosen pharmacy within the shortest possible time.

There are a number of factors which may impact on which pharmacy is chosen and there can be no guarantee that a pharmacy to which the prescription is delivered (if that option is chosen) will be the nearest pharmacy.

– we will use reasonable endeavours to procure the processing and despatch of your prescription within 4 business days where the medication is in stock;
– the delivery time following despatch should typically not exceed 3 business days to any region in Nigeria but please note that in relation to delivery to remote locations, or internationally, that delivery time could be longer;
– delivery fees are displayed within the App at the time of the order – please note that this does not include the cost of the medication;
– delivery will be within the timescale selected in the app where possible;
– medications are personal to the person for whom they are intended and therefore may not be returned and no refunds will be given for medications ordered once the order is placed;

– if no one is available to take delivery of the order when delivery is first attempted, there may be a delay in delivery, and/or the recipient may have to follow the procedures of the relevant despatch company in order to collect the order, including picking it up from a depot.
• Our partner dispensing chemists are not part of our organisation and, to the extent permitted by law, we disclaim responsibility for their acts and omissions.


We offer private testing services
• The App can be used to order certain medical tests (“Tests”). These services are provided by a partner laboratory with which the Company has entered into arrangements for those services.
• The partner laboratory is a separate entity from us and to the extent permitted by law we disclaim any liability for any acts or omissions of the partner laboratory.
• By ordering any Tests, you agree to comply with any instructions provided in relation to the Tests including in relation to the booking and administration of Tests, receipt and provision of Test materials and samples (including delivery by post or attendance in person at Test facilities) and payment.
• Subject to a range of factors including (without limitation) the nature of the relevant Test, your location and the availability of laboratories, the App may enable you to:
– request the despatch, by post, of a Test to be administered (self-collected) by you and returned to the laboratory by post, with the results then analysed, sent to us and delivered to you through the App;
– arrange an appointment to attend a Test centre for the Test to be undertaken, the results to be sent to us and delivered to you through the App; and
– contact a Test centre, to enable you to arrange to undertake a Test independently and have the results sent to us to be delivered through the App.
• You understand and acknowledge that prior to Test results being made available to you within the App, you may be requested to undertake and pay for an additional consultation with a Practitioner.
• The prices will be displayed within the App and you agree to those at the time of ordering. Certain pathology services – for example, if you elect to contact a Test centre to undertake a Test independently – may incur charges in addition to those listed in the App and you acknowledge and agree that such additional fees as required may be payable.
• If, within the App, you choose to order your Test for delivery to you and administration (self- collection) by you, it will be despatched by our partner laboratory. The terms of delivery shall be as follows:
– within 3 business days where the Test is in stock;
– the delivery time following despatch should typically not exceed 3 business days but please note that in relation to delivery to remote locations that delivery time could be longer;
– prices and delivery fees are displayed within the App at the time of the order;
– delivery will be either by express delivery or refrigerated express delivery, depending on the Test;
– Tests are personal to the person for whom they are intended and therefore may not be returned and no refunds will be given for Tests ordered once the order is placed;
– orders may be subject to a minimum price as displayed in the App;
– we or our partner laboratory may refuse to fulfil an order where we consider the order not to be in the best interests of the person for whom it is intended or who has ordered it or may be illegal or contrary to any regulation or guideline; and
– if no one is available to take delivery of the order when delivery is first attempted, there may be a delay in delivery, and/or the recipient may have to follow the procedures of the relevant despatch company in order to collect the order, including picking it up from a depot.
• Processing time for a returned Test will vary depending on the Test but we will use reasonable endeavours to procure that the laboratory analyses the Test and returns results within 14 business days. Results will be delivered to you through the App and you explicitly consent to that by ordering through the App.
• Tests to be administered at a drop in Test centre will be subject to the terms and conditions of that centre and the opening hours of that centre.

• The Company will use reasonable efforts to process any orders for Test services within 2 business days and the time limits set out above start running from the end of that processing period.

• You cannot order Tests anywhere outside Nigeria.


What our Monitoring service does, what you can rely on it to provide, and when you shouldn’t use it
• The App is able to display data resulting from clinical investigation, other clinical data and other fitness and wellness related data regarding you for monitoring (“Monitoring”).

We will do what we can to arrange a consultation with a Practitioner as soon as possible, but do not guarantee to offer consultations within a particular time. Consultations generally are limited to 10 minute durations (with general practitioners and, if you use the Private Service, 20 minutes with specialist clinicians).
• Other than for our Clinical Services, if you choose to submit details about your symptoms in the App, the information returned is on the basis of general healthcare information and not as personalised health advice for you. Where the information returned indicates that the symptoms entered suggest further medical advice is necessary, you acknowledge that you are responsible for seeking such advice from your Doctor or other medical professional.
• Practitioners may hold different clinical opinions on the same medical condition or symptoms and, provided these opinions are reasonably held, the fact that two or more Practitioners give different opinions in the course of service provision does not necessarily indicate that our services are defective.

• We may need to ask you for certain personal information in order to provide our services. If you do not provide this information when requested, we may be unable to provide our services.
