Pharmacies and Wholesale Pharmacies

If you have been given a prescription (NHS or private) for natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) or liothyronine (T3) you may find that you have trouble getting it dispensed.  Some community pharmacies may not have seen a prescription for these medications before and may struggle to obtain them from their normal suppliers.

If you do obtain a prescription for these medications and your normal pharmacy cannot obtain this, it might be a good idea to suggest that they try a different wholesaler (most pharmacies have their usual wholesaler) and give them details of the pharmacies below who are wholesale pharmacies.  If you still have no luck, you could try a different community pharmacy.

If you still have problems obtaining the medications locally, try one of the pharmacies below.  You will see that some will dispense using NHS prescriptions and some will only dispense on a private prescription. 

We have marked those that are only wholesale pharmacies.  These are for community pharmacies to use only.  They will not dispense to individuals.
