PLEASE NOTE - NOMINATING A PHARMACY FOR EPS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO ORDER THE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ELECTRONICALLY. YOU CAN STILL TELEPHONE THE PRESCRIPTION LINE ON 01457 835345 TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION.
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
You need to choose a pharmacy for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination.
You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time by contacting any pharmacist or your GP Practice.
Yes. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now. Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser. Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
Please allow 48 hours before your prescription is ready for collection.
From time to time you will need to make an appointment in order for the doctor to review your medication. A note will appear on the bottom of your repeat slip when it is time to do so.
ALL PATIENTS ON REGULAR MEDICATION ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND FOR A MEDICATION REVIEW WITH THE CLINICAL PHARMACIST EVERY 12 MONTHS (AT LEAST). THIS IS REGARDLESS OF BEING UNDER A CONSULTANT, ETC.
IF YOU FAIL TO RESPOND TO 3 MESSAGES YOUR MEDICATION WILL BE TAKEN OFF REPEAT, THEREFORE, NOT BE ABLE TO BE ISSUED BY A MEMBER OF STAFF IN RECEPTION.
PLEASE CHECK THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF YOUR PRESCRIPTION FOR ANY MESSAGES.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
