Can I trust Hive Pharmacy?

At HIVE Pharmacy, we specialise in the home delivery of medicines, both private and NHS. Hive has been supplying medicines for over 70 years. We are contracted by the NHS and regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council, the same as every other pharmacy in the UK. Our customers currently rate our service as 5/5 stars on - the most trustworthy review site for NHS services. Our team comprises of qualified pharmacists, technicians and dispensers as well as a friendly customer services team, dedicated to making NHS prescriptions easier for our patients.

Is it easy to sign up with Hive then leave if I don't like it?

Yes - our sign up form take less than a minute to complete. Give us a go! The NHS EPS service allows you to change the pharmacy that your GP sends your prescription to at any time, allowing you to select the most convenient option for you. To move to another pharmacy, simply register with them, you do not need to inform us.

Who delivers my medication?

Your medicines will be delivered either by our van or Royal Mail in plain, discreet packaging. Royal Mail parcels are sent by Tracked 48 (2days), so its important to order your repeats in good time. You receive tracking info by SMS to your mobile phone with a delivery window. We cannot send insulin and other temperature sensitive medicines in the post.

*Does Hive Pharmacy charge for delivery?

Delivery for our NHS repeat prescription service is free of charge for the vast majority of NHS prescriptions.

*Occasionally you may be asked to make a small postage payment. This will only happen when the prescription is; a) very small; b) particulary heavy; c)very high value and this charge is only to help cover our costs.
Cold Chain - we currently do not provide delivery of insulin and other temperature sensitive items.

What if I am out when my prescription is delivered?

We can arrange delivery to any address - your home, your place of work, to a carer or neighbour. Remember, you will receive an SMS with a delivery window so you dont have to wait indoors all day. If you are having a Royal Mail delivery - a card will be left so you can arrange re-delivery for free on the phone or using their website. If you have a Hive Pharmacy van delivery - a card will be left to let you know we will try again. You can also let us know about a safe place if you are not home to accept delivery.
