EPS - what this means to you

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a way of patients having their prescriptions sent directly to a pharmacy of their choice, avoiding the need to collect the prescription from the surgery.

Currently 86% of our prescriptions are sent using EPS. Now its time for the next stage.

From 3rd June 2019 East Shore Partnership will start 'EPS Phase 4'.

This means that patients with a Nominated Pharmacy will have their prescriptions signed and sent electronically.

Patients without a Nominated Pharmacy will be given a Phase 4 Token (still a Green bit of paper) with a unique bar code that can be taken to any pharmacy for processing. This replaces the traditional Prescription you are currently given.

There are certain items that cannot be processed via EPS, however in this case you will still be given a traditional prescription to take to your pharmacy.

So not much changes for the patient, you will still have a paper copy (Token) of your prescription and you can go to any pharmacy, anywhere in England to have this dispensed.

We would encourage you to nominate a pharmacy if you have not already done so as the more patients using this service saves the NHS money which has to be a good thing, and its more convenient for the patient.

To nominate a pharmacy you can either use your SystmOnline account or you can speak to a member of the reception team who will arrange this for you.
