How can we help you?

Here you will find the answer to the most frequently asked questions that come in to LIVI's support

Can I obtain an acute prescription through LIVI?

For patients eligible for the LIVI NHS service:

As during any other physical GP appointment, your GP will evaluate your condition and assess what the best treatment is for you. If your GP believes that you are in need of medication they will write you an NHS prescription.

For patients who are using the LIVI private service:

As during any other physical GP appointment, your GP will evaluate your condition and assess what the best treatment is for you If your GP believes that you are in need of medication they will write you a private prescription.

GP's at LIVI cannot prescribe medication that is classified as narcotic medication.

Please note that certain items can be prescribed within our private service, but not within our NHS service since they are not permitted under NHS prescribing limitations. Examples of this include:

  • Creams for male pattern baldness.
  • Self-limiting conditions

This does not prevent our LIVI GPs discussing these treatments, and advising you of where you can go to obtain them.
