Hernia Medical Advice

If you are experiencing sudden, intense pain in your abdomen or groin that you suspect may be a hernia, contact your doctor immediately or visit the Emergency Dept. This site is not intended as a substitute for professional medical care. Only your surgeon can diagnose and appropriately treat your hernia.


Hernia Briefs on Prescription

How to get hernia support briefs on National Health Service (NHS) prescription...

Assuming that you are a UK taxpayer and resident in the UK:

1) Measure accurately around your waist.
Use the top of your existing brief line to determine a tight and accurate waist measurement.  If you are abdominally obese measure under the belly.

2) Get a clinical diagnosis of 'Inguinal Hernia' from your GP.
Our compression briefs are only designed to put direct pressure on the inguinal canal area of the male abdomen. If you have a umbilical hernia we have a model to fit you (but this is unavailable on prescription). 

3) Ask your GP to prescribe 'Orione Hernia Brief' from Section IXA Appliances of the England & Wales Drugs Tariff or Part 3 Appliances PDF of the Scottish Drugs Tariff.
Unless you have other medical conditions or your particular local Clinical Commissiong Group (CCG) has financial rationing issues this should be freely available on prescription. Wearing our briefs will mitigate the condition worsening and reduce any pain by gently retaining the hernia inside the abdomen.

4) Determine if the Prescription electronic or paper-based?

An electronic prescription will go to the GPs prefered Pharmacist which may not know how to order it for
you.  A s
mall / Independent pharmacists may need to call 01647 270257 to order it direct from us on a 24 hour turnaround.
Lloyds, Rowlands, Well, Sainsburys , Tesco, Asda and other chains will all use their preferred 3rd party warehouse.

If you have the green FP10 paper form our advice is to go directly to your nearest branch of Boots the Chemist and  ask the Pharmacist on duty to order it through 'Alliance Specials' on 0344 8544 998This should be a 48 hour maximum delivery  turnaround. This is the least hassle route.

If you have any problem with the Pharmacist procuring your your prescription please call 01647 270257, we are happy to speak to the
Pharmacist, GP or yourself at any stage of the procurement process.
