Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

To write private prescriptions in the UK doctors must be registered with a licence to practise with the General Medical Council (GMC).

If they are not physically based in the UK, but write private prescriptions that can be used in the UK, do they still need to be registered with the GMC?
