Your options for getting prescriptions online at Boots

NHS and private prescriptions

If you have an NHS or private prescription for a one-off medication or a repeat NHS prescription you can save time by placing your order online. You can collect your medicine from a Boots pharmacy, or get it delivered to your home or a post office near you.

How much is a prescription?

If you live in England and pay for your NHS prescription, you'll pay the standard prescription charge for each item in England, which is £8.60 as of 1 April 2017. Certain groups of people may be eligible for free prescriptions, if they have an NHS exemption certificate or a prescription prepayment certificate for instance. The cost of private prescriptions varies.

I need a prescription

If you need a prescription, for certain conditions like hair loss, you may be able to get your medicines without a trip from a GP through one of our online clinics. You'll first of all need to answer a short series of questions, so we can check if the medicine is suitable for you.
