Private Prescriptions

When private prescriptions are brought in with a request for them to be changed to an NHS prescription, the normal 48-hour rule will apply.

Prescriptions are unable to be changed immediately. If a prescription is deemed by the prescribing consultant to be urgent, please could you redeem the prescription at the appropriate hospital pharmacy. If new medication is being issued we will not issue more than one month at a time until you have been established on this medication in order to prevent expensive drug wastage in the event that the medicine does not suit you.
