How a prescription issued after a private consultation is different to an NHS prescription and how you can receive your medicine.

Private prescriptions can incur higher charges for patients than NHS prescriptions.
Patients may ask their GP for their medicines to be supplied on the NHS using an FP10 form.
Alternatively, private clinicians may write to NHS clinicians requesting for treatment to be continued within primary care. Please note NHS clinicians are under no obligation to issue an FP10 for patients who have had medicines prescribed privately. Please see further details below explaining why your GP may not be able to transfer your private prescription onto an NHS prescription

If you have chosen to be seen privately and have been prescribed medication, you will need to pay for the first script privately. You will need to ensure we have a copy of a consultation letter from the private consultant so we can then review if the private prescription can be considered for an NHS prescription. We will require 2 weeks' notice to review private prescription requests.
