We are able to send your prescriptions electronically using the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).

How can patients use EPS?

You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose:

  • A pharmacy
  • A dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one)

Ask your chosen pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS to add your nomination for you.

What does this mean for patients?

If you have 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 can chose a pharmacy which is convenient for you, such as near to where you work, live or shop.

Can patients change their nomination or cancel it and go back to paper prescriptions?

Yes you can. If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP.

If you want to change your nomination, speak to your newly chosen pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS.

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. Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
