The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is initiated by the National Health Service (NHS), which allows you to send prescription electronically through your GP to the pharmacy.
Typically, you need to visit your GP to pick up your paper script and wait at your chemist to get your medication dispensed. With EPS, your prescribing GP will send prescription electronically to Pharmacy Outlet, saving you time.
Is EPS a right service?
Yes, it is absolutely correct if you suffer from a stable condition and you do not wish to visit your GP regularly to collect your repeat prescription. It is also right if you want your medication delivered at your door. It may not be correct for you if you do not get your prescriptions very often.
First, you need to have a good look at the chemist that offers Electronic Prescription Service to collect or receive the medication. This you can do by nominating a local or online pharmacy. You can nominate any GPhC registered pharmacy operating full electronic prescription service.
Usually, you do not have any kind of restriction on nominating a pharmacy near your practicing GP. However, you can only nominate one pharmacy for EPS.
