Will I be charged any extras?


When you’re prescribed medication while using the online GP service, you’ll need to pay the postage for the medication to be sent to you. This cost will be added to the total prescription charge when you pay over the phone, following your online GP consultation. The cost of postage can’t be claimed back through your prescription benefit.
