Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)

Electronic prescribing enables prescribers, such as GP’s and Nurse Practitioners, to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient’s choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.

Please contact a pharmacy of your choice and ask to "nominate" them for receipt of your Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS). Thereafter, you should order your medication directly from your Pharmacy (there is no need to contact us). We will process your request within 2 working days of receipt. The prescription will go directly to your pharmacy via an electronic link. They will dispense your medication and you then collect your order directly from them, completely bypassing your GP surgery. This new system is more secure, will save patient's time and avoid unnecessary trips to the surgery.

Repeat prescriptions take 48 hours (2 working days) from receipt to process. Some chemists offer a collection and delivery service. If you would like a chemist to collect, dispense and deliver your prescription this will take longer. Please contact the pharmacy of your choice for further details about dispensing and delivery timescales.

Please help us to reduce NHS waste by only ordering the medication you require.
