NHS Electronic Prescription Service
Prescriptions in England are going paperless!! For repeat prescriptions, instead of giving you a paper prescription we can now send it to the pharmacy of your choice as part of the NHS Electronic Prescription Service.
What's in it for you?
- Saves time - you don't have to visit the surgery just to pick up your paper prescription. And you may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as your repeat prescription can be made ready before you arrive.
- More convenient - you can choose to have your prescriptions sent to any pharmacy offering the service. This could be near to where you live, work or shop.
- Safer - it's all done electronically, so there's no paper prescription to lose.
Did you know all local chemists will collect and deliver prescriptions? You do not have to be housebound for this service. Contact your local chemist for more information.
All repeat prescriptions are regularly reviewed so after a period of time the doctor may ask to see you for a medication review.
For more information about EPS please visit the NHS EPS web page
Please note that we send all controlled drugs by EPS and where possible do not give hand written prescriptions
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a Doctor, Pharmacist, Nurse Practitioner or Practice Nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
If you have a query about your online prescription request please telephone 0161 426 9388 before 11:30am
