Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

Since 1st March 2016 the GPs working here are able to produce and transmit an electronic prescription to a pharmacy you have nominated with no need to produce a paper prescription. Note, that the surgery no longer generates paper prescriptions for patients. 

The Electronic Prescription Service (or EPS) will allow you to collect your medications from a pharmacy at a location convenient to you; it could be near your place of work, for example.

If you wish to join in this scheme please go to your preferred pharmacy and let them know you want them to be your nominated pharmacy. They will then register your details and we will know that you have joined the EPS scheme.

 

If you have already nominated a pharmacy please remember that from 1st March 2016 your prescriptions will automatically be sent to this pharmacy unless you ask us to do otherwise. If you are unsure whether you have a nominated pharmacy please check with your pharmacy.

 

You can nominate a pharmacy at any time, or you can also ask that your prescription remain on the NHS Spine which will then enable you to collect form any local Pharmacy. 

Please see the Patient Fact Sheet for more information.
