Emergency Prescription Requests
Private Prescriptions Requests
A GP or clinical pharmacist will not convert a private prescription into an NHS Prescription.
A private prescription is not written on an official NHS prescription and is not paid for by the NHS.
The cost of a private prescription is paid by the patient and is dictated by the cost of the medicine plus the pharmacists charge for supplying it.
A prescription is a legal document for which the doctor, who has issued and signed it, is responsible for.
An NHS doctor cannot convert a private prescription to an NHS prescription. A doctor you see privately can’t issue an NHS prescription.
Book a GP appointment to discuss your medical condition and they will assess your clinical need.
Please contact us if you have a query about a prescription. Please allow 2 working days for a response.
