The Electronic Prescription Service 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.
