How do Babylon prescriptions work?

A clinician may decide to issue medication to treat sudden or short term conditions. If they do, they will create a prescription in your appointment.


After your appointment, you’ll get a notification in the app and be asked to choose if you:

  • Want to collect your medication from a pharmacy of your choice
  • Want your medication delivered to you


You'll have to pay for private prescriptions and any applicable delivery charges if you select that option. The price of a private prescription varies depending on the type of medicine and the pharmacy you choose. Read more on prescription delivery. 


For our private service, we can't prescribe controlled drugs and have strict limits on high-risk medicines. We may refuse to prescribe to you if we think it's not safe or legal to do so.
