As a private doctors surgery, our general practitioners can issue private prescriptions and repeat prescriptions for all standard medicines. Medications can be collected from the pharmacist next door straight after your appointment.
Private prescriptions do not attract the NHS £8.40 charge per item. Instead they are priced based on the cost of the individual drug. Many items are cheaper than going via the NHS. Unless you request otherwise, your doctor will prescribe the cheaper generic version of a drug where available. Should you wish to have a particular branded alternative then please advise the GP during the consultation.
Our prescription service is particularly popular with tourists or those who have recently moved to London but who have not yet registered with an NHS GP surgery.
Please note that our doctors do not prescribe controlled drugs (e.g. morphine, methadone). If you believe that you require controlled drugs then we recommend that you contact your nearest NHS GP surgery to find out your local specialist service.
With prices from just £29, some of the most highly trained private doctors in London and same day prescription medicines, DocTap is the perfect solution if you need your medication in a hurry.
