Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
Did you know that you can request to have your repeat prescriptions sent electronically by us to the chemist of your choice? This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for you, the surgery and pharmacy staff.
You simply need to let us know which chemist you wish to nominate to receive your prescription request.
Following that every time you request your repeat medication, you will then wait the 48 hours, as you do now, but then you can visit your chemist and collect your medication without having to come into the surgery
If you normally collect repeat prescriptions from the same place, or if you collect them on behalf of someone else, you could benefit from the service:
- you can collect repeat prescriptions directly from a pharmacy without visiting your GP
- you won't have paper prescriptions to lose
- you will spend less time waiting in the GP surgery and/or pharmacy
- the service is reliable, secure and confidential
