We are proud to be associated with the NHS for over 60 years. As contractors to the NHS nationwide since 1946, A&A Studios was responsible for standardising the categories of hair pieces which are now used by the NHS throughout the UK. We continue to play an important part in consulting with the UK health service.
With years of experience in working with NHS patients, A&A offers a wide range of hair replacement solutions, hair pieces and wigs. In fact, our product range is the largest available in the UK.
If hair loss is due to chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment, the Oncology department will ask us to supply, fit and style a ready-to-wear wig for the patient. Hospital dermatology i.e. skin departments, treat patients referred by their GPs for scalp problems and hair loss concerns. Where appropriate, an order form will be issued for a patient to obtain partial or full hair pieces and renewals.
At the moment, the supply of hair pieces and wigs is interpreted differently by NHS England, Scotland and Wales. Prescription charges are payable in England and Northern Ireland. Scotland and Wales have abolished all charges for prescriptions.
Hair pieces and Wigs
All patients have access to our vast array of ready-to-wear, soft synthetic wigs. We also offer a range of incredibly natural-looking men’s pieces and ladies wigs via our online store Natural Wigs

Real Hair Wigs
NHS prescriptions for real hair wigs or hair pieces are generally only issued for patients who are deemed to have a “clinical need”. However, A&A staff is always pleased to offer patients advice on all types of hair replacement products, including real hair wigs, hair pieces and hair transplants.
Hair Integration is a relatively new procedure which blends real hair with your own existing hair. You can read more about the process and view the amazing ‘Before and After’ video on our dedicated Hair Integration page.
