Private Prescriptions

Main image

A private prescription from YourGP offers a quick and easy way to get the medication you need, especially away from home travelling, or on business.

We can provide you with a replacement prescription:

  • If you need replacement medication
  • If you are on holiday and forgotten or lost your medicine
  • We can also advise you on the supply of medication for chronic conditions and provide you with the appropriate prescriptions where feasible

*Prescriptions for controlled drugs will be issued in liaison with your NHS practice where feasible.  There is a set fee of £35 for every controlled drug prescription issued.

How It Works

If you need a private prescription you:

  • Book a consultation with one of our GPs
  • Bring along your empty bottle or old prescription
  • The GP will assess your requirements and issue a prescription for you to take to any pharmacy

Once we have assessed your requirements, we will then issue any required prescription.


When you are issued a prescription as part of a consultation, there will be no additional charge (see*).

When you are issued a prescription following a telephone consultation, there will be an £85 charge for the consultation and a £20 prescription fee.

Repeat prescription outwith appointments for regular patients are £20 each.  Pharmacist’s fees vary for prescribed medications, these are outwith the control of YourGP
