As part of our ongoing effort to make the GP to patient interaction more effective, we are encouraging patients to sign up to the Electronic Prescription Service.

The EPS enables prescriptions to be sent directly to the chemist of your choosing; removing the need for you to come to the surgery before heading to the pharmacy.

Currently, we have over 3,000 patients who have nominated a pharmacy – helping us to help you look after your health.

NHS Digital says of the service: “The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) sends electronic prescriptions from GP surgeries to pharmacies. Eventually, EPS will remove the need for most paper prescriptions.”

So how can you take advantage of this service? Simply ask at the pharmacy to be registered for the service or alternatively you can discuss this with one of our reception staff who will be happy to help.
