Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

If you get regular prescriptions the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may be able to save you time by saving you unnecessary trips to your GP. The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) allows your GP to send your prescription directly to your chosen pharmacy without a paper prescription.

Find out more about the Electronic Prescription Service visit http://www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients or speak to your practice or pharmacist.

How using EPS could benefit you

If you collect your repeat prescriptions 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 the place you choose, saving you time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive

Please speak to your nominated pharmacist to activate your EPS.

Is this service right for you?

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:

  • Don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.
  • Collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.

This service is not suitable for all patients. It may not be suitable if you:

  • Don’t get prescriptions very often.
  • Pick up your medicines from different places.

How can you use EPS?

You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. This could be a pharmacy local to your home or work address. 

Ask any pharmacy or a member of the reception team to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

Yes you can.

If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically, tell your GP.

If you want to change or cancel your nomination, speak to your nominated pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor. 

It is important to tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

Yes. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now.

Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser. Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.

Benefits of EPS

  • More efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
  • Reduces paper.
  • Safer, faster and more efficient.
  • Patients don't have to visit their GP for a prescription.
  • Patients won't have a paper prescription to lose.

For more information visit http://www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients or your pharmacy.
