What we won't prescribe

We regularly review the medications that we prescribe, making sure we meet best practice guidelines and provide safe care to all of our patients. This may mean that a medication that was previously prescribed by us is no longer available.

For our private service, we can prescribe for up to 28 days (at the clinician's discretion). For medicines like contraception and HRT it can be up to 6 months providing we have appropriate monitoring in place. 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.
