Document Am I liable for my prescription penalty charge if I did not collect or sign the prescription myself?

Yes, it is your responsibility to ensure the information provided on your prescription / declaration is accurate.

The FP10 prescription form states if you are unable to collect prescriptions yourself, someone can take your completed form for you.

If you or your representative collects / receives the prescription for free and you did not have any valid exemption, you will be liable for any penalty charges issued, regardless of whether you, your representative or the pharmacy signs the FP10 or made the declaration.
