NHS Repeats Management
Hive Pharmacy encourages patients to order directly with their GP, however, it also accepts repeat prescription requests from its patients.
Our service involves forwarding your request to the relevant GP surgery once. This is done by email using our patient medication record system (PMR) . Our service then dispenses your prescription as it is received usually 2-3 days later. Hive Pharmacy processes thousands of such requests each month. Please note that due to the volume, we do not chase for any prescriptions not received. In the event a prescription is not received it would be for the patient to contact the surgery.
Hive Pharmacy will forward requests for repeat medication, not acute medication. Requests for medicines not on the GP repeat list are unlikely to be prescribed.
NHS Prescriptions Posting
Hive Pharmacy does send NHS medication in the post using a parcel service such as Royal Mail.
This service is not funded by the NHS. Hive Pharmacy covers the postage cost. Our service uses Tracked 48 class post in the main.
Hive Pharmacy reserves the right to refuse provision of this service.
Hive Pharmacy accepts online bookings with its pharmacists. Some services can be booked for free and others require a deposit. The full deposit will go toward the cost of any treatment offered on the day of the appointment.
Bookings that are free may be cancelled at any time.
Bookings that a deposit or full payment has been paid may be cancelled by clients. There will be a £10 administration fee for cancellations within 48 hours of the appointment.

Returns & Refunds
Hive strives to provide the best service possible to all of our customers. We hope that the experience you receive in dealing with us, and equipment we provide, reaches the standard that you expect of us. However, we know sometimes something is not right, and a return may need to be requested. We will always try our best to rectify any problems in a swift and satisfactory manner, within the parameters that we will clearly set out as follows.
All eCommerce orders within the UK are protected by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, which is an extension of Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights.
You may be familiar with (or have heard of) the Distance Selling Regulations and the Sale of Goods Act. Both of these are now obsolete, replaced by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (from here onwards referred to as “the CRA”).
In short, the CRA explains the minimum standards that you should expect of any eCommerce purchase. With regards to returns, the Act details your “right to cancel” (which is essentially, your right to return anything you have ordered because you have changed your mind). Here we explain how we ensure your rights outlined in the CRA are protected when you order from us.
Therefore, goods can be returned to us by post. We reserve the right to refuse to exchange or refund items that are not returned within 14 days of delivery.
In order to qualify for a refund, all Items must be in a re-saleable condition i.e. undamaged, in their original and undamaged packaging, unworn and complete with all tags and labels attached. We reserve the right to refuse to refund items that are returned that are not in re-saleable condition. Goods returned in an unsatisfactory and not in a re-saleable condition may be returned to you at your expense.
EXCEPTIONS TO THE CRA
There are exceptions to our Refunds policy for certain items. Please note this is a non-exhaustive list and that these conditions do not affect your non-excludable statutory rights.
For reasons of health, hygiene safety and copyright, we are unable to exchange or refund the following products:
FAULT / DAMAGED / MISSING ITEMS / INCORRECT ITEM
We MUST be notified within 24 hours of receipt. Please notify us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org together with your name & order number. We will need photographs of the damage/fault so please do not throw away the item.
DAMAGED OR FAULTY
We will look into this and notify the manufacturer.
We will refund the price of the damaged/faulty item and your postage cost.
We will look into this and send out the missing item.
INCORRECT ITEM RECEIVED
If we have sent out the incorrect item as a result of our fault (picking error) we will send out the correct item.
We ask that you do not open the packaging of the incorrect item as we may ask for you to return the item. In this scenario we will pay for the return postage.
CANCEL AN ORDER/CHANGE YOUR MIND
If you have ordered any of our face masks that are to be delivered by post, you have the right to cancel an order up until the point that your order is dispatched.
You will receive a dispatch email from us. After this point your item will have been dispatched and postage applied and paid for. You then cannot cancel your order.
If you then do not want the item you will need to return the item unopened. Please do not break the seal on the parcel/envelope. If it is opened we cannot accept the return for hygiene reasons.
In this case you can simply refuse the package and ask for it to be returned to sender.
If you accept the package you will be responsible for the return cost. We suggest you track the parcel as until it reaches us you will be responsible for it.
Upon receipt so long as we receive it in good condition we will refund you for the cost of the item minus the initial postage cost.
FREESTYLE LIBRE FAULTS
This item rarely has faults but on occasion, you may experience an issue. In this case, the manufacturer Abbott will look after this. Please contact Abbott on 08001701177. Or click here:
FACE MASK RETURN - GENERAL TERM
Our Company policy is that we DO NOT accept return of face masks for hygiene reasons.
Should you wish to return a face mask that is in sealed packaging and the seal has not been broken please contact us and we will consider a refund. In such cases please note that you will be responsible for the return postage cost. We suggest you track the parcel as it is your responsibility until it reaches us. So long as we receive it in good condition we will then refund you for the cost of the item only and no postage costs.
Please note we cannot accept returns of part open boxes.
If the masks are not in sealed packaging we cannot accept a return at all for hygiene reasons. Our website will tell you if the mask arrives in a sealed or unsealed package.
AVIRO MASK- EXCHANGES & RETURNS
The Aviro mask will arrive in an unsealed plastic pouch with a ziploc fasten.
We ask that you look at the size chart on our website prior to ordering.
