How does our prescription delivery service work?

Use our online pharmacy to order your repeat NHS prescriptions & get them delivered for free

Co-op Health pharmacist

Register online or by downloading the app

If you have a prescription from a GP in England, the quickest way to get started with Hey Pharmacist is by registering for a NHS login. NHS login is the most secure way to connect to your NHS record and protects your information. You can get started online here or by downloading our app.

To prove who you are the NHS will ask for:

  • confirmation of your email address
  • an image of your photo I.D (e.g. passport or driving licence)
  • a short facial recognition or video of you to verify your photo I.D

You can also connect by visiting your GP surgery to register for online services - they'll probably send your codes to you in a letter. If you've already used them to register with Patient Access you can find them in your profile.

Follow these steps to order your NHS repeat prescription
