You can now contact a local pharmacy for the oral contraceptive pill for free. Please find a local participating pharmacy by clicking on this link.
You do NOT need to contact a doctor or nurse for a prescription.
A pharmacist may be able to supply the contraceptive pill if you need to:
- start using the contraceptive pill for the first time
- start the contraceptive pill again after a break from taking it
- get a supply of the contraceptive pill if it’s already been prescribed to you
If the pharmacist gives you the contraceptive pill they will share this information with your GP if you give permission for them to do so.
