What is NHS Electronic Prescription Service? Why Should I Use It?

Modern medical person

The NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an amazing service that allows your GP practice to send your prescriptions electronically from their computer to your favourite pharmacy.

The EPS means that you do not need a paper script of your prescription. You do not need to pick up the prescription from your physician in person, as your physician sends it electronically to the pharmacy.

Why should I use EPS?

For a patient, changing from the conventional prescription process to the NHS Electronic Prescription Service will offer you three important advantages:

  • Save time
  • Save money
  • Less visits to your doctor

Using the NHS Electronic Prescription Service means that you do not need to visit your GP when you need a new prescription. By nominating a chemist, you will also benefit from getting your prescription medicine delivered to your home, or workplace.

Who can use EPS?

The NHS Electronic Prescription Service is recommended to people with a stable condition and collect their medicine from the same place at all times. Patients who already use the repeat prescription service and patients who do not want to frequently visit their GP just to pick up a paper prescription can use this service.

Please note that the EPS is not suitable for patients who do not get prescription very often or collect their medicine from different pharmacies.
