Electronic Prescription Service(EPS)
This practice has started to send prescriptions electronically. With this service the paper prescriptions go electronically to your nominated pharmacy.
What does this mean to you ?
- If you collect your repeat prescription or get it posted 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 your nominated pharmacy.
- You will have more choice about where you get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live or work.
Please note you can still drop in prescriptions if not using online service and also cannot keep changing the nomination once done.
Please Nominate your pharmacy at the reception or in turn ask your pharmacy to nominate them.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
