Replacing a Private Script with an NHS Prescription

We will ONLY replace a private script with an NHS script providing an appropriate letter from the private consultant is supplied with the prescription. The letter will need to clearly detail the indication for starting the medication advised by the private consultant. Failure to provide this will result in a delay in issuing you an NHS prescription.

The decision to replace a private prescription with an NHS prescription remains with the patient’s GP under our local prescribing policies. Therefore if the indication to start a private medication falls outside of our local prescribing policies then the prescription will either be changed in accordance to good local evidence based prescribing or not be issued (it will remain a private prescription).

Your GP is not obliged to replace Private prescriptions with an NHS prescriptions if he/ she deems that it is not appropriate. Your private script can be used at any pharmacy but will encounter an appropriate drug charge.

Please allow up to 72hrs from the time of request to pick for all such prescriptions. The cost for a private prescription is £20.
