Enquire now Prescription Request

We understand the importance of timely access to prescriptions and medications for maintaining your health and well-being, and Doctor Now offers a prescription and medication service designed with your convenience in mind.

Prescribed medications play a crucial role in managing patients’ health and well-being. In addition, repeat prescriptions are provided for medications that patients need to take regularly over an extended period. These are often requested by patients once their initial prescription runs out. Our GP’s will carefully monitor and review patients and associated medications to ensure their effectiveness for the patient’s health and diagnosis. In addition, regular medication reviews and consultations with patients are conducted to assess treatment efficacy, adjust dosages if necessary, and address any questions or concerns. This comprehensive approach ensures that patients receive optimal care and support for their medical conditions.

As a private GP service, Doctor Now’s can only issue private prescriptions. We cannot issue NHS prescriptions. With private prescriptions you pay for the cost of the medication instead of the NHS prescription fee. On occasion, the cost of the medication will be lower than an NHS prescription fee; however, costs will be higher for other medications. All pharmacies will fulfil private prescriptions; however, costs may vary between pharmacies.

The safest and most secure option is an electronic prescription that can be collected from any UK pharmacy or delivered to your home address. The method is the most efficient and cost effective solution and enhances safe prescribing.

In the event of a paper prescription being required, this can be arranged for collection from the practice or posted to your preferred pharmacy or your home address (with the exception of controlled drug prescriptions which must either be collected or sent by recorded delivery to you or to a designated pharmacy).

We do carry a limited stock of common medications at our surgery, which our doctors can dispense to patients during a consultation as appropriate, saving a trip to the pharmacy. All dispensed medication is payable on the day of the consultation.

Please be aware that we cannot accept any unused or out of date medication for disposal at our surgery – you will need to take the medication to any pharmacy who will be able to dispose of it correctly for you.
