Electronic Prescription Service

What is the Electronic Prescription Service?

A simpler way to get your medicines and appliances

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. The Practice can send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

 

What does this mean for you?

  • If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend time visiting your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it to the place you choose, which is more efficient.
     
  • 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.
     
  • You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock, they can be ordered in ready for you. ​​​
