DOCTORnow is a private GP service which issues out private prescriptions to new and existing patients. You will pay for the cost of the medication rather than the NHS prescription fee. Sometimes, the cost of the medication can be cheaper than the NHS fee. Whereas, other times, it can be more expensive. We do stock a range of medications in the surgery which the Dr can issue at the time of your appointment. For any medications we do stock, private prescriptions can be taken to any pharmacy.
For existing patients, we are currently working on an online prescription service and will advise our patients when this is up and running. In the meantime, should you wish to request a repeated prescription, this can be done via email with your full name, date of birth and the medications you require, email email@example.com detailing where you would like to collect your prescription.
We can fax your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice or you may prefer to collect it from the surgery. If it is a controlled drug, these private prescriptions can only be collected or posted directly to the pharmacy. Please be aware that in some circumstances, the doctor may need to telephone or see you regarding your prescription request. We general aim to deal with all prescription requests within 6 hours.
