Electronic Prescribing Service
We now offer an Electronic Prescribing Service. The Electronic Prescribing Service enables prescribers such as GP’s and Practice Nurses to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser such as a pharmacy of the patients’ choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
Once you have chosen a pharmacy, you will need to complete a form with them to sign up to EPS and the pharmacy logs this onto their computer system. When you then go to your GP to request a repeat prescription, the GP will send a message through the computer link to the pharmacy and the pharmacy will then issue the medication from the electronic prescription. Therefore saving paper as no need to print out the actual prescription.
If you are interested in this service, please enquire at your local pharmacy if they use EPS.
