Electronic Prescription Service

On 31st March 2015

 will launch the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) if you have already nominated a pharmacy your prescriptions will automatically be sent as requested.

With EPS you order your prescriptions in the usual way, but you can collect your medication without the green paper prescription.  Your prescription will be sent electronically instead.

To use this service you will need to NOMINATE (choose) which pharmacy you would like your prescription to be sent to.

You can chose a pharmacy anywhere in England, as long as they are ready for EPS (over 95% are).

To nominate to use EPS please talk to your pharmacy or to the reception desk in the GP surgery.

Please be aware that not all medications can be prescribed electronically – your GP surgery or pharmacy should be able to advise you further.
