Electronic Prescription Service
A new way to get your medicines and appliances
What does this mean for you?
If you collect your repeat prescription from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it electronically to the pharmacy you have nominated to receive your prescriptions.
You will have more choice about where you get your medications from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live work or shop.
Is this service right for you?
Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:
- Don't want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription
- Collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now
How can you use EPS?
You need to choose a pharmacy for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. To learn more about nomination speak to your local pharmacy.
