A new way to get your medicines

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. Your GP practice can send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?

  • Instead of visiting your GP practice to collect a paper prescription, your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with no chance of it getting lost.
  • You will have more choice about where to collect your medicines from – a pharmacy near to home or work
  • You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock, they can be ordered in ready for you.
