Why do you need to know if I am disabled?
People with disabilities do not have to pay VAT on products related to their disability. So if for example you are diabetic and want the lancing device and lancets to check your blood glucose levels then you do not need to pay VAT on this product. Unfortunately most pharmacies and retailers will require you to pay the full price including VAT and will leave you to fill out a long form to claim the VAT back. But if you buy from us, all you need to do is to confirm you have a disability from the drop down menu and you will be charged the price excluding VAT. You must select an option from the drop down menu to get the correct price
*Please note that if you select "I have a disability related to this product" then you MUST provide us with your home address. This is because you are making a legal declaration which we will supply to HMRC so they need your home address details. If you want the goods delivered to an alternate address such as your work or to a storage facility and you select the non-VAT option, then you will need to send us a message with your home address before we can ship the goods*
Benefits of this Lancing Device
This lancing device is designed to make obtaining a blood sample as easy and pain free as possible. There is a comfort tip which offers 5 different levels of skin penetration to ensure you can obtain a sufficient blood sample as painlessly as possible:
This lancing device also comes with an Alternative Site Cap which allows you to obtain a blood sample from another area of the body such as the forearm or palm. These other areas may have fewer nerve endings and so will be less painful than lancing a fingertip. The Alternative Site Cap also has 5 different puncture depth settings for maximum comfort. In addition, if you are obtaining a blood sample for glucose level testing then using a blood sample from an alternative site may be more accurate on some occasions - such as when it has been more than 2 hours since you have eaten, taken insulin or taken part in any physical activity.
