HOSPITAL PRESCRIPTIONS AND PRESCRIPTIONS ISSUED BY A PRIVATE HOSPITAL / CONSULTANT
Please note that with immediate effect we are not able to transfer hospital prescriptions or scripts from private consultants, onto NHS prescriptions to be issued from the surgery. If you have been given a prescription by the hospital it is important that you wait and collect this from the hospital pharmacy. Please do not bring to the surgery for us to issue here. This is due to the fact that some items are only available for issue by the hospital and not available in general practice. Also if the paper is handwritten it is not always easy to interpret what is being prescribed and errors can be made. Again if you have an appointment to see a consultant privately - we cannot convert the script to an NHS prescription, should they issue one. Please take the private prescription directly to your pharmacy.
