Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) enables GPs to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice making the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for you and the Practice.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from the surgery you will not have to visit your us to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the pharmacy you have nominated, near to where you live, work or shop. You will then collect the order directly from the pharmacy.
This service is ideal for you if you have a stable condition and you don’t want to come in to the Surgery every time to collect your repeat prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
