NHS Prescriptions for patients going abroad

 

At present the BMA recommend that doctors prescribe no more than three months supply of medicines for patients not in the country, as per the current regulations, stating:

 

“The NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to 3 months. If a person is going to be abroad for more than three months then all that the patient is entitled to at NHS expense is a sufficient supply of his/her regular medication to get to the destination and find an alternative supply of that medication”. [1]
