The electronic prescription service (EPS) was introduced to remove the requirement for paper prescriptions. The service makes prescribing more efficient and convenient for both you and the surgery and allows the traceability of the prescription throughout the prescribing and dispensing process.
EPS requires you to nominate a pharmacy of your choice; you can do this at the pharmacy or at the surgery. You can only nominate one pharmacy at a time. This means that we send your prescription electronically to the chemist directly, thus saving you a trip to the surgery to collect your prescription. Please note that you may change you nomination at any point.
Note in regards to out of stock items:
In some circumstances you may want to obtain your items at another Pharmacy i.e. if the medication you require is out of stock on a one off occasion without changing your nomination. Please enquire at your usual Pharmacy or at the GP surgery in regards to how to do this.
