Electronic Prescribing (EPS) - What does this mean for you.

If you collect your repeat prescriptions from the surgery you do not have to visit the practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time. The service may not be suitable if you dont have a stable condition or you pick up your medication from different places.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from beacause they can be collected from a pharmacy near where you live, work or shop.You may not have to wait as long in the pharmacy as their will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

How to use EPS

You need to choose a place for your Gp practice to ellectronically send your prescription to. This is called a nomination authorisation will be required from each patient. a consent form can be otained at the GP Surgery. Can I change my nomination or cancel ir and get a paper prescription. Yes you can. If you dont want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your Gp. If you want to cancel or change your nominated pharmacy speak to the pharmacists appliance contractor or your Gp practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription will 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, pharmicists, and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your 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 or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser. Dispensers will aslo see all the items on your recorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
