PHASE 4 EPS INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 21/4/2020

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Electronic Prescriptions Service




A new system has been created to make it easier for you to pick up your repeat prescription. It is called the Electronic Prescription Service, or EPS for short. It is now available at Reservoir Road Surgery.




The Electronic Prescription Service is an NHS service that sends your prescription from your GP surgery to a Pharmacy without the need for a paper copy.




Nominate a pharmacy of your choice and this pharmacy will receive your prescription directly from your GP, via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).




With EPS you will not have to visit your practice to pick up your paper prescription anymore.




You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because you can choose a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. Please only nominate a pharmacy if you are sure that you will always collect your medication from that pharmacy.




EPS is reliable, secure and confidential.




Your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people in GP practices and pharmacies who see your paper prescription now.




If you are interested in using the Electronic Prescription Service speak to your pharmacist or GP practice staff.
