You can also sign up for The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which means 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 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 betime for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive. Please ask reception for further details.
Prescriptions can now be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
The benefits of this are:
- You no longer need to collect your prescription from the surgery and take it to the pharmacy
- It is more secure—prescriptions are less likely to be lost or mislaid
- Faster—prescriptions signed by the GP will be at the pharmacy within minutes. The pharmacy can get the medicine ready before you collect it thus saving you waiting time
- Electronic prescriptions save time for the NHS and for you
- More efficient use of resources—less paper!
You can ask your regular pharmacy to sign you up for this service today! You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time by asking another pharmacy to sign you up. You can only have one nominated pharmacy at a time.
