THE ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE EXPLAINED

The Electronic Prescription Service, or EPS, sends prescriptions electronically, from the GP practice to a pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. Many of our patients already use this service but if you still collect your prescriptions from the surgery, please do consider this very helpful and convenient alternative.

 

EPS is an established, tried and tested service that has been available for many years. It is convenient, easy to use and access to a computer or any other electronic device is not needed, you simply nominate a pharmacy and inform the surgery. It could not be easier.

 

Present COVID19 restrictions dictate that we must reduce social contact, not make unnecessary journeys and protect vulnerable patients. This is where EPS can be so helpful by eliminating routine visits to the GP surgery. EPS can also help to reduce waiting times at both the GP practice and the pharmacy.

 

To start using EPS simply choose the pharmacy you wish to use (your nominated pharmacy) and this detail can then be added to your records either by the chosen pharmacy or the GP practice.

 

We feel that this facility is so helpful, from time to time we may contact those patients who do not already use the service to further explain the benefits.

 

Electronic prescriptions sent via EPS are reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people who currently process your paper prescriptions and if you are on repeat prescriptions, the dispenser of your medicines will also see the items on your re-order slip.

We hope that you will take advantage of the Electronic Prescription Service and if any aspect of the facility requires any further explanation or clarification, have no hesitation in contacting the surgery, we are here to help.
