Yes, Private GPs can prescribe medications on private prescription that will be accepted at normal pharmacies.
Our experienced GPs at Prime Health Partners can advise you on the most appropriate medications/treatments to suit your needs.
Private doctors have access to a wider range of treatments as there are less cost restrictions that can sometimes apply in the NHS.
Our doctors can go through your options of the different types of medication, their side effects and benefits and what would suit you as an individual.
There are some restrictions: such as Controlled Drugs (certain sleeping medication, pain killers and ADHD medication) and Specialist only drugs (for example chemotherapy) so it is best to enquire before booking an appointment if you have a particular drug medication request.
There are also some high-risk medications that require close monitoring including blood tests as well as specialist shared care before they can be prescribed either by Private or NHS GPs.
