How can you use EPS?

The Electronic Prescription Service will be going live in this pharmacy over the next few weeks. To enable this pharmacy to supply your prescription medication please complete the consent form on page fve of this leaflet and hand it to a member of staff. (If you need any assistance our staff will gladly help you). We will then add your nomination. You don't need a computer to do this.

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription

Yes you can. If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically, tell your GP. It is your choice where your medicines are dispensed. If you want to change or cancel your nomination, speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them well before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

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.
