Electronic Prescriptions

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.

  • Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
  • You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
  • Read more about EPS on the NHS website.

If you get regular prescriptions, the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may be able to save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.

EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the Pharmacy or Dispenser of your choice.

Choosing a Pharmacy or Dispensing Appliance Contractor to process your EPS prescription is called nomination.

This means you’ll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP Practice – instead, you can go straight to the nominated Pharmacy or Dispensing Appliance Contractor to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.
