Unlike over-the-counter medicines, prescription drugs need to be signed off by a doctor before they're dispensed.
Prescription drug prices can differ greatly, depending on the medication in question and whereabouts in the country you live.
To help you get to grips with just some of the prescribed medication our GPs can give you, we've put together a prescription drugs list with details on each medication, what it can treat and how it works.
If you're away from home and run out of your regular prescription, our GPs can write a top-up if suitable.
We can send a top-up prescription to any pharmacy in the UK, making it easy to get the medication you need, no matter where you are in the country.
Even if you're travelling, we can arrange for you to collect your medication from a pharmacy en route at a time to suit your schedule.
