Electronic prescribing service
You can find detailed information under the "Prescriptions" tab at the top of the page.
The Electronic Prescription Service(EPS) ia an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
If you collect your repeat prescriptions 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 place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. For more information ask at reception or vist www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients, your pharmacy or GP practice.
