Converting a Private prescriptions over to an NHS one (FP10)

Our NHS Contract does not oblige the Drs to automatically convert a private prescription in to an NHS one.   The Drs can only do this if they are willing and have the specialist knowledge to take on the responsibility for the prescribing of that particular medication.

Practice Procedure/Policy:

  • The receptionist will take a copy of your private prescription and add as a message for your registered GP. Your GP will then make a decision as to whether he or she is willing to take on the responsibility of prescribing the required medication.
  • Someone from the practice will contact you once your Dr is available to make a decision.
  • If your Dr is not happy to take on the responsibility you will need to continue to obtain supplies from your Consultant.
  • If you prefer not to wait you may find it quicker to take the prescription to a local chemist for dispensing as a private prescription.
