EPS - Electronic Prescription Service

This month we are asking patients to register for electronic prescriptions service (EPS) this is a NHS service which allows prescribers to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient which saves you queuing twice. By March we will aim to have all our repeat prescriptions by EPS.
