Impotence treatment on the NHS is only available for a limited number of medical conditions. If your diagnosis of impotence is associated with any of the following conditions you will be eligible to receive treatment on an NHS prescription:
If you need prescriptions on a regular basis or require many treatments, you could save money with a pre-payment certificate. In England the NHS prescription charge is currently £7.20 per item. However, a 3 month tariff costs £28.25 and a 12 month tariff will cost you £104. The 12 month certificate tariff should only be considered if you require more than 14 prescription items a year. You can apply online or by using a FP95 form, which will be available from your local GP's surgery or local pharmacy.
You will not have to pay for your prescription if the following criterion applies to you:
A private prescription will not be written on an official NHS prescription form. It is therefore not paid for by the NHS. A private prescription must be paid for in full by the individual who requires the prescription treatment. This cost is dictated by the cost of the medicine plus the pharmacist's supply charge.
Private prescriptions can be easily renewed. For this to happen, your local doctor has to alter the number of repeat prescriptions that you have asked for. Private health insurance schemes do not generally pay for the treatment of impotence. It is recommended that you check the small print of your policy first.
It is advisable for anyone who is seeking online treatment to steer clear of any websites you come across that offer medicines for impotence without a prescription. This practice is illegal and unsafe. The medications and treatments sold on counterfeit online clinics may contain dangerous ingredients.
