Consultations are always free and confidential, regardless of whether the pharmacist gives you any medication.

If you do not have to pay for your prescription from your doctor, then the medication prescribed for you by the pharmacist will also be free of charge.

If you normally pay the standard fee for your prescription, then this would be the maximum amount you would be charged. However, in many circumstances, the medicine will be cheaper to buy over the counter and the pharmacist will advise you of this.
