Electronic Prescription Service

EPS_328x212Prescriptions can now be sent directly to your pharmacy of choice using EPS2.

If you pickup your medication from the dispensary at the St Faiths surgery you will continue to collect them from there.

For all other patients – i.e. those patients who pick up their medication from a pharmacy you can choose to nominate a pharmacy and if you do so your prescription will be sent electronically to them.  This will mean you no longer need to come to the surgery to pick up your repeat prescription.  If a GP issues medication whilst in a consultation this will also be sent straight to the pharmacy and you won’t be issued with the paper prescription.

If a pharmacy currently manages your prescriptions on your behalf then they will have already set your nomination.  You can nominate a pharmacy either at the surgery or at the pharmacy you wish to collect your medication from.

You can choose not to nominate and if this is the case you will continue to receive your prescription printed on the green prescription paper.
