Electronic prescriptions service (EPS)
The practice has now started to send prescriptions electronically. EPS is a new NHS Service which allows you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescriptions to the place you choose to collect your medicines or appliances from.
If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from your GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.
You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.
You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.
