Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
EPS enables prescribers - such as GPs and practice nurses - to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
What this means for you:
If you have regular repeat prescriptions you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy that we can send your prescription to. In most cases this will already be recorded on our system and our Receptionists will ask you to confirm and consent to this. Your regular pharmacy may also ask you to sign a nomination form on their behalf.
You will order your repeat prescription in the normal manner but instead of us producing paper prescription we will send your order directly and electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.
You can change your dedicated pharmacy at any time and you can still request to collect a paper prescription from the surgery whenever you wish.
