Electronic prescription service (EPS)
Electronic Prescription Service is an NHS service where the surgery can send your prescriptions automatically to a pharmacy of your choice to get your medicines or appliances from. Bexley was one of the first areas in the country to start using this service in early 2012.
What does this mean for you?
- Instead of visiting your GP practice to collect a paper prescription, your GP will send it directly to a pharmacy of your choice, with no chance of it getting lost
- You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as there will be time to get your prescription items ready before you arrive
- If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock, they can be ordered before you come to collect
How do I choose A pharmacy to collect my medicines from?
You will need to nominated a pharmacy to collect medicines from by completing a EPS nomination form.
