Electronic Prescription Service

Do you have a repeat prescription?

Did you know that every day GP's in the UK issue 1.5 million paper prescriptions and 70% of these are repeat prescriptions?


A new system has been created to make it easier for you to pick up your repeat prescription. It is called the Electronic Prescription Service, or EPS for short.


The Electronic Prescription Service is an NHS service that sends your prescription from GP surgery to Pharmacy without the need for a paper copy.


Nominate a pharmacy of your choice and this pharmacy will receive your prescription directly from your GP via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).


With EPS you will not have to visit your practice to pick up your paper prescription anymore.


You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because you can choose a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.


EPS is reliable, secure and confidential.


Your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people in GP practices and pharmacies who see your paper prescription now.


If you are interested in using the Electronic Prescription Service speak to your pharmacist or one of our Reception staff.
