If you already have a prescription for a wig from the NHS, we can provide you with one at your earliest convenience. The following steps will outline the process:

  • If you are reluctant or unable to visit us, you can call our service team Monday – Friday from 9am until 4:30pm to discuss your prescription and the style you would like to redeem it against.
  • Depending on choice of style and conditions of your prescription, there may be a top up fee required.

To receive your NHS prescription, you should consult with your local hospital. They will be able to assist with any queries you have. Many trusts have pre-approved local suppliers, but if you have a preferred supplier you can generally use that company.

 Regional NHS wig provision varies, so you should contact your local supplier for definitive information on; prescription value; prescription cost; and where you can use your prescription.

As for us we would love to hear from you and can provide private consultations for those who would like to come and see us.
