We will soon be upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
This will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically. If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from the GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.
You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice, rather than being printed and you will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
- prescribers can process prescriptions more efficiently
- dispensers can have improved stock control, and provide a more efficient service to patients
- patients can collect repeat prescriptions from a pharmacy without visiting their GP, and won't have a paper prescription to lose

Please let a member of our team know your preferred pharmacy.
