Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a system which allows GPs to electronically send prescriptions to a pharmacy for the patient to pick up. Patients will have to choose the pharmacy from which to collect their prescription, a process known as nomination. Patients can simply go into the pharmacy of their choice and tell them that they nominate them. The pharmacy will make contact with the surgery. Patients choosing not to ‘nominate’ can continue using paper prescriptions if this is more convenient for them.
Patients on repeat prescriptions or dosette will find this beneficial as well as patient's visiting our clinicians for a one off prescription.
