While we don’t charge for writing prescriptions, specialist referral letters, fit notes or safe-to-fly notes, you will have to pay for any medicine you require. As our GPs write private prescriptions, the cost of medicines can vary to the standard NHS prescription charges. We have no control over what your local pharmacy will charge. Some charge for fulfilling a private prescription. Our doctors will always try to prescribe you the most cost effective medicine and will let you know if it is going to be expensive. As a rough guide, our UK delivered private prescriptions tend to cost less than £10 per item, including delivery.
