Hi tehre,
Soolantra is a very new cream and very expensive. A private dermatologist will doubtlessly be able to prescribe the cream, but it is not sure if your insurance will not cover for it.
Since it is extremely expensive (https://www.northdrugstore.com/buy-Soolantra.html) I would think it over; it might be worth waiting for the N.H.S dermatologist. It is a good product, but no "wonder- medication".
I wish you all the best!
