I am sorry to hear, we are an advice service only so do not provide prescriptions

However a cough and sore throat implies that this is viral in origin therefore antibiotics is not appropriate for your symptoms from what you describe.

Thanks. Do you know how I can retrieve an over the phone prescription

If you want some antibiotics just in case, try an online GP

This is an option but will cost both £45 for a consultation and prescription.
