Why have a private prescription?
Getting an private medicine appointment with your own NHS GP isn’t always straightforward and can often be a huge source of frustration, especially when all you want is your prescription. You can avoid all the unnecessary stress and go straight for an appointment with Dr Ghosh to help sort out your private prescription needs.
Another source of frustration can be the fact that not all treatments are available on an NHS prescription, or the qualifying criteria often limits them to very few individuals. Even if you are able to get the drugs you require, these are often prescribed by your NHS doctor in very limited quantities, meaning you’ll very soon need a repeat prescription and have to go through the process again.
In some cases treatments may be available on the NHS, but it can sometimes come down to where you live - the so called ‘postcode lottery’ - which means that some drugs may not be available due to budget constraints in your area, or a doctor’s unwillingness to prescribe what you want. One such example might be an anti-smoking drug which might be available on the NHS to first-timers but will not be made available for those who have unfortunately lapsed.
What are the benefits of private prescriptions?
The advantages of having a private prescription instead of an NHS prescription are many and include the following:
- Convenience of getting your prescription.
- More choice over the treatments available.
- Access to some non-NHS Drugs and medications that otherwise wouldn’t be available to you.
- A private GP is not restricted to offering the minimum number of tablets.
- A private doctor is under no obligation to choose the cheapest treatment option.
- A private doctor may be happy to offer more than one treatment on the same prescription.
Can a private prescription save me money?
It is possible that a private prescription could save you money, not only by removing any potential travel costs or the loss of your time, but also in terms of the costs of the drugs themselves. Since NHS prescriptions have an £9.15 charge for each item prescribed, some products such as antihistamines, painkillers, and generic medications may work out far less expensive via private prescription or over the counter. Many generic medications consist of the same active ingredients as their branded versions, but will generally be much less expensive. Therefore medications of this type can often be far less expensive on private prescription than through the NHS.
