About Prescriptions

 

Whether you are getting medicines from your GP or hospital, there will be a prescription involved. Did you know that you can get your prescription dispensed from any pharmacy you choose? You are not obliged to go to the pharmacy “next door” to your local surgery, for example. You have the right to choose which pharmacy dispenses your prescription – maybe one nearer your home or workplace? Even if a vet prescribes a medicine for your pet, you have the right to request a prescription for it, and take it to any pharmacy you choose – you are not obliged to pay for such medicines from the veterinary surgery you attend.

 

Doctors can write prescriptions for most medicines. Dentists can prescribe medicines but only for conditions affecting your teeth or mouth. Likewise, veterinary surgeons can prescribe medicines relating to animal care. Some other healthcare professionals, such as nurses or pharmacists, are also able to write prescriptions for special areas of medicine if they have extra prescribing qualifications. Prescriptions can be a one-off (or "acute"), or they can be “a repeat” of regular medication.  You can order your repeat prescriptions here.

 

In Wales the NHS prescription form is also known as a WP10 (if it is from your GP) or a WP10HP (if a hospital doctor issues it). Such prescriptions are green and bilingual, in both Welsh and English language. (Note, some hospital medicines however, can only be dispensed at the hospital pharmacy. Check with the hospital when they give you the prescription – before you leave the hospital)! Normally, the hospital issues a green WP10 prescription for you to take to a community pharmacy when you are discharged, or when you leave an outpatient clinic. Thereafter, your GP usually takes over the prescribing (see our Discharge Medicines Review services).

 

Private Prescriptions

 

Some treatments are not available on the NHS, but can only be provided as a “private service.” An example of this would be anti-malarials. The doctor still writes a prescription, but instead of it being on a green WP10 form, it will be written on the practitioners letter-headed paper. You can take this to any pharmacy you choose, but it means you will have to pay for the items yourself – even if you get free NHS prescriptions the rest of the time. For example, many people cannot get dental treatment on the NHS. They have to pay the dentist privately for any services, and then pay the pharmacy for any prescriptions written. Because it is a private service – the cost of the prescription will vary between different pharmacies. For the best prices and ‘no obligation’ quote for your private prescription, call us free of charge on 0800 020 9366.

 

Our Dispensing Services to You

 

Whether you have an NHS or private prescription, we will be happy to dispense it. We can dispense prescriptions from all doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeons and we will provide a very competitive price for any private prescriptions which you may have. We are able to give you advice on when and how to take your medicine, and if there are any medicines or foods you should avoid while taking it. We will clearly label your medicine with directions or warnings (eg. if your medicine causes drowsiness or if alcohol should be avoided). We keep a comprehensive stock of medicines and with many wholesalers, several providing daily deliveries, we aim to dispense your prescription immediately and without fuss. We offer you peace of mind, expert advice as well as other helpful healthcare services. Because we are independent, we provide a more ‘personal touch’ and unlike the multiples, have a more flexible approach to our services. We are happy to deliver to your home, workplace or nominated address, on the same day and at no cost to yourself. Just give us a call.
