Please be aware that if you have been issued a private or hospital prescription, the practice will not be able to assist you in having this dispensed. The GPs cannot take responsibility for another clinicians prescribing (unless it has been specifically asked of them) so will be unable to convert a private or hospital prescription into an NHS FP10 (the usual green prescription and counterfoil).
Hospital prescriptions must be dispensed by a hospital pharmacist (i.e. cannot be converted to an FP10 to be dispensed by a high-street pharmacist), and private prescriptions must be dealt with privately as there will be additional charges (i.e. cannot be converted to an NHS FP10 so only standard NHS prescription charges apply).
We understand that hospital pharmacies can often be very busy, but it is important that you wait to be dealt with by them in order to receive your medication as quickly as possible and to avoid having a wasted journey to the surgery or to your high-street pharmacist to try and obtain the medication elsewhere.
