The ‘Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)’
Almost 60% of patients (who have repeat prescriptions) have now arranged for their repeat prescriptions (once requested) to be sent directly to their local pharmacy electronically. This then saves patients having to call into the surgery solely to collect their repeat prescriptions. Instead patients collect their repeat prescriptions directly from their nominated pharmacy at a time which suits them (as lots of local pharmacies have very generous opening times). It is simple to arrange -all that you need to do is to call into your chosen pharmacy to set this up. More is explained in the leaflet below
