Policy on prescriptions after seeing a Private Doctor
Can I get my private prescription transferred to an NHS prescription?
If you see a private doctor or specialist and they prescribe a particular medication for you, this will be a private prescription. Private work should not impact NHS resources.
In order to help patients who are unable to obtain their prescription privately at a community chemist, our GP’s can transfer to an NHS prescription providing the following criteria are met:-
- The medication is prescribable on the NHS.
- The use of the medication is compatible with national or local prescribing guidelines.
This is work outside of the scope of the NHS General Practice and will therefore incur a £10 admin fee.'
