The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is changing
The next phase of EPS (Phase 4) is being introduced at GP practices in England. This will mean that almost all of your prescriptions will be signed and sent electronically.
If you do not have a nominated chosen chemist you will be given a printed token (not prescription) which you can take to your chosen chemist in England. The chemist will then download the signed EPS prescription from the NHS spine using the token.
For more information please speak to dispensary at the surgery or visit www.nhs.uk
Please be advised that our receptionists have been instructed to ask you for a brief description of why you are calling so that we can prioritise your call and direct you to the most appropriate clinician. Please help by answering their questions.
