What is a private prescription?

A private prescription is a service that allows you to obtain prescription medications directly without visiting your GP's practice. This streamlined approach is ideal for individuals with busy schedules or limited access to healthcare facilities. Our service aims to make your healthcare journey more convenient and efficient.

How does our private prescription service work?

  • Online Consultation

    • We will send you a link in your booking confirmation email to complete a patient questionnaire and provide relevant details about your medical history, current symptoms, and any medications you may be taking. This information helps our healthcare professionals gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation. 

  • Professional Evaluation

    • Our qualified prescribers will thoroughly review your information. They will assess your condition and contact you to discuss this. If appropriate, they will recommend suitable treatment options tailored to your needs. Our experienced team ensures that you receive expert guidance and appropriate prescriptions. 

  • Prescription

    • If our prescribers determine that a prescription is necessary, we will issue it electronically and send it to one of our branches for you to collect. You can also have this sent to another pharmacy of your choice. You will need to pay for the medication prescribed when you collect it.

  • Ongoing Support

    • Our commitment to your well-being extends beyond issuing prescriptions. We offer ongoing support and are available to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your treatment. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest level of care throughout your healthcare journey.

Frequently asked questions

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email our customer care team or chat with us.

    • Where is this service available?

      This service is available in our branches, which are commutable from anywhere in Yorkshire, including Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, York, Huddersfield, Sheffield, Barnsley, Hull, Doncaster, Ripon, Harrogate, Dewsbury, Keighley and Scarborough.

    • Are next-day appointments available?

      Yes, you can get next-day appointments at all our branches. Contact our customer care team if you cannot find an available slot.

    • Can pharmacists prescribe?

      Yes, pharmacists can prescribe. However, they must take on an extended role as "prescribers" under certain conditions to do this. There are two main types of pharmacist prescribers in the UK:

      • Independent Prescribers: These pharmacists have completed additional training and are qualified to prescribe medications for any medical condition within their area of competence. Independent prescribers can prescribe a wide range of medications, similar to doctors and nurse prescribers.

      • Supplementary Prescribers: These pharmacists work alongside doctors or other qualified prescribers in a patient's care. They can prescribe medications within a specific patient management plan the doctor and the pharmacist agreed upon.

      Both types of pharmacist prescribers undergo additional training and hold an appropriate qualification to take on this extended role. However, they cannot prescribe all medications, and they must follow specific regulations and guidelines.

    • Can I use private prescriptions to obtain medication for a pre-existing condition?

      Yes, you can use private prescriptions to obtain medication for pre-existing conditions. The prescriber will review your medical history and assess your health status to determine the appropriate treatment.

    • Can I combine private and NHS prescriptions for different medications?

      Yes, you can have both private and NHS prescriptions for different medications. It is essential to inform both healthcare providers about the medications the other prescribes to avoid potential interactions or duplications.

    • Is my medical information kept confidential in a private prescribing service?

      Yes, patient confidentiality is a vital aspect of private prescribing services. Healthcare providers must adhere to data protection laws and maintain patient medical information privacy. Your health details should only be shared with your consent or when required by law.

    • Can I get a repeat prescription through a private prescribing service?

      Yes, many private prescribing services offer repeat prescriptions. However, this usually requires regular follow-up consultations to monitor your condition and ensure the ongoing appropriateness of the prescribed medication.

    • Are private prescriptions more expensive than NHS prescriptions?

      Yes, private prescriptions are typically more expensive than NHS prescriptions. In addition to the cost of the medication, patients also need to pay for the consultation. The pricing may vary depending on the healthcare provider and the prescribed medication.

    • Are private prescribing services safe and legal?

      Private prescribing services are legal and can be safe when conducted by registered and qualified healthcare professionals. 

    • What can I expect during a private consultation?

      During a private consultation, the prescriber will take your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and ask relevant questions to understand your health condition better. They will then determine whether prescribing medication is appropriate or suggest alternative treatments if necessary.

    • Is a private prescription different from an NHS prescription?

      Yes, there are differences between private prescriptions and NHS prescriptions. The NHS does not subsidise private prescriptions, so patients need to pay the full cost of the consultation and the medication.
