Electronic Prescribing System (EPS 2)
EPS 2 allows patients to nominate a chosen pharmacy to receive their prescriptions electronically instead of using paper prescriptions. You can nominate a pharmacy either by telling a member of the pharmacy staff, or one of the team at the Practice. They will be able to update your preference on their systems. You are free to change your preference whenever you wish.
How it works
The Practice staff use an electronic system to request the medication, the doctor signs it electronically and it is then sent directly to the pharmacy who then download the prescription and dispense the medication. You would then go directly to the pharmacy to collect your medication(s), no need to come to the Practice beforehand. You can obtain more information at Health & Social Care Information Centre.
Please ask at reception if you would like to use EPS 2.
