How to get a prescription online
Download the Livi app
Sign up and select your existing GP practice for our free NHS service. If you’re not yet eligible you can choose to use our pay-as-you-go service instead.
Book an appointment
See a GP at a time you choose, up to 3 days ahead. The GP will call you in the app to start your video appointment and assess whether you need a prescription.
Get your prescription
If the GP decides you need a prescription, you'll receive a confirmation in your Livi inbox, and you can pick up the prescription from your chosen pharmacy.
See a GP by video the same day with Livi. If the doctor decides you need one, they can give you an acute online prescription sent straight to your inbox, ready to pick up from your local pharmacy.
Appointments available 7 days a week
When you’re not feeling well, your health shouldn’t wait. Livi allows you to see a GP by video on evenings and weekends, so you can get an online prescription at the time you need it.

If you live in an area that’s eligible for the Livi NHS service, the standard NHS charge of £9.35 per item will apply. Some patients are exempt from this charge so are entitled to free prescriptions.
If you’re using the Livi pay-as-you-go service, the price of your prescription will vary. You'll be charged the cost of the medication and a private dispensing fee, instead of the set NHS prescription charge.
