Private Prescriptions

Patients being seen on the NHS by a nurse or doctor must be issued with NHS prescriptions. Conversely patients being seen by a doctor under private arrangements must be issued with a private prescription. This may commonly occur when a patient chooses to see a specialist privately and it is Worcestershire policy that this initial prescription for medication must be paid for privately even if the repeat medication may be available from the GP on the NHS.

There is a small list of drugs (directed by government) which must be prescribed privately even within an NHS consultation. The commonest of these are medicines for erection problems, travel medicines and some older sedative medications. When these prescriptions are handled by the pharmacy they will make a handling charge to the patient in addition to the costs of the medication itself which will need to be paid.

Patients from outside the European Union will normally not be seen under the NHS and consequently consultations and prescriptions will be privately charged. These fees can often be claimed back on travel insurance policies on returning home so be sure to keep receipts.
