If you have undertaken an assessment under the private sector, then it would be expected that any precription given by that consultant should be obtained as a private prescription (as per NHS Surrey).

The reasons why your GP is unable to issue these medications include:

  • It may be an unlicensed medication
  • There may be a more cost effective medicine prescribed locally from Surrey Primary Care Trust
  • The medicine may need special monitoring and your GP feels they do not have the expertise to do this
  • It may not be a medication your GP would normally prescribe
  • A full diagnosis, with appropriate test results, has not been provided by the consultant
  • Your GP feels that the medicine is not clinically indicated

The practice will only switch a private presciption to NHS precription under exceptional circumstances.

If you have any further queries regarding this then please arrange a telephone consultation with your GP.
