Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions
It’s all gone Electronic, making it easier for you – yet again!

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

What does this mean for you?

• If you collect your 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 pharmacy you choose, saving you time.

• You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

• You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

• All you have to do is nominate a pharmacy to have your prescriptions sent to.

Speak to our pharmacist or qualified staff member at your local branch to register your nomination or for any further information.
