    What medication can you prescribe?
    MedicSpot doctors can prescribe medication to patients which can be collected straight away from the pharmacy. We can prescribe most medications. However, ultimately it is up to the discretion of the doctor as to whether a medication is prescribed or not. Common medication we prescribe includes antibiotics, antidepressants, diabetic medications, blood pressure medication, and creams. We can also prescribe short courses of sleeping tablets and anti-anxiety medication, but photo ID must be provided for this.

    MedicSpot doctors do not generally prescribe any controlled drugs substances, with the exception of Diazepam 2mg, Diazepam 5mg, Zolpidem 3.75mg, Zolpidem 7.5mg, Co-Codamol 15/500, and Codeine Phosphate 15mg. Please note photo ID needs to be provided and quantity of medication is restricted for these strong painkillers, sleeping tablets, and anti anxiety medication.

    MedicSpot doctors can provide you with a repeat prescription but this is at the doctor’s discretion and is subject to your health issue, medical history, and country of residence.
    Do I need to buy my prescriptions from the same pharmacy I've used MedicSpot from?
    Whilst the vast majority of our patients get their prescriptions from the same MedicSpot pharmacy where they had their consultation, you are able to take your prescription to another pharmacy if preferred. Just let the pharmacist know and you will be told how to do this.


    Will seeing a private GP affect my relationship with my NHS GP?
    Seeing a MedicSpot private GP will not affect your relationship with your regular NHS GP. You do not need to de-register yourself from your current NHS surgery to use MedicSpot like some other providers. We encourage patients to stay registered with their NHS GP because online consultations will never fully replace a traditional doctor consultation.
    Should I tell my NHS GP that I used MedicSpot?
    At the start of each consultation, you will be asked whether you want a copy of your records to be sent to your regular NHS GP. We encourage this to promote better continuity of care, but the decision is ultimately up to you. MedicSpot is designed to be used in addition to your normal GP, not as a substitute.
    Will MedicSpot be able to access my NHS records?
    MedicSpot is currently unable to access your NHS medical records. However, the doctor will ask you about your medical history and regular medication during the consultation.
    Can you issue NHS prescriptions?
    Any medication that your MedicSpot doctor recommends will be issued as a paid-for private prescription. Medication will be ready for collection on your way out following your private GP appointment. As MedicSpot is not a NHS service - our GPs are unable to issue NHS prescriptions.

We have kept our private GP prices deliberately affordable as we recognise that we provide many people with a safe, affordable, and convenient alternative to traditional GP care.

    Yes, MedicSpot can be used by anyone even if they are visiting the UK temporarily as tourist. Pre-registration is not required to book a private GP appointment with MedicSpot. We see many patients who have recently moved to the UK, but who have not yet been able to register with an NHS GP.

    Your private doctor is able to write you a sick note for work, college, or school. They can also write a referral letter if you need to see a specialist consultant. Sick notes and referral letters are written up after your consultation and emailed to you.
    Can I make a booking for my child?
    MedicSpot allows parents or guardians to book private GP appointments on behalf of their children. However, we do not treat children under 5 years old. All children under 16 should have their parent or guardian present during the consultation and IDs are required to be shown by the supervising adult.
