The practice will be able to offer the Electronic Prescription Service, this means that your prescriptions will be sent to your preferred pharmacy for you to collect at your convenience. If you would like to take advantage of this, please ask your pharmacist to set your nomination.
Almost all pharmacies are connected to use this service, and the benefits include -
You will not have to revisit the surgery to collect your prescription.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacist as they will have time to prepare your prescription in advance.
What happens if you do not wish to use this service ? Nothing, you will continue to receive your paper prescriptions.
For more information, please pick up an information leaflet at the surgery or visit www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/eps
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRACTICE IS NO LONGER ABLE TO TAKE REQUESTS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS BY TELEPHONE.
