You can adjust the Upvc door hinges using the hinge screws. The screws are normally adjusted using Allen's keys, which are located right beneath the screws. The upvc door requires re-adjusting mostly over the summer as the door expands due to the rise in temperature.
Adjustment of UPVC doors can be done through two methods. The first is known as a 'toe and healing' technique, which uses the Allen key for adjusting the up and down movement of the door or to bring the doors together. The other method is known as the 'cam settlement', and enables one to refit the door into the frame by fine tuning the top edges of the doors.
Before you start adusting the adjustable hinges, you may want to try a longer screw through the top hinges into the wood wall studs. This may pull the door back into plumb without messing with the adjustment of the hinges. Especially if the doors look like they are sagging as you mentioned. The adjustable hinges are not really made to solve that particular problem
