What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It allows your GP to electronically transfer your NHS prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice.
This service will be gradually rolled out across all GP Surgeries & Pharmacies in England.
You will be advised by your Surgery when they have moved onto the EPS System. At this time you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy to deal with your prescriptions.
How will I know if I can use the Electronic Prescription Service?
Your GP will be able to tell you whether they are able to offer this service. Alternatively, the NHS Choices website has a list of Surgeries who offer this service.
You have the right to collect medicines that have been prescribed for you from any pharmacy you choose.
Your choice should not be influenced by letters you receive in the post, or by any doctor or pharmacist.
