What happens if you are going abroad?

  • If you are going abroad for 3 months or less we will give you a one off supply of up to 3 x 28 day supply to cover this period
  • If you spend 6 months abroad in any 12 month period we will give you 1 x 28 day supply. This is enough to last you until you can make arrangement to get further supplies at your destination by, registering with a doctor in the country you are visiting or buying the medication from a pharmacy while you are away.
  • If you are out of the country for more than 6 months under current NHS guidelines we are obliged to de-register you from our list.
