Electronic Prescription Service at a glance
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is the main method of prescription transfer between GPs and pharmacies. Patients need to decide which pharmacy they want to collect their medicines from. The pharmacy of choice is called a nominated pharmacy. Pharmacy nomination can be changed:
- by GP surgeries (for example when requesting medicines)
- pharmacies (in person, and over the phone)
- online (when requesting repeat medicines) and with the use of smartphone apps.
