The Electronic Prescription Service – an efficient, paper-free system

Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) sends electronic prescriptions from GP surgeries to pharmacies.

Eventually EPS will remove the need for most paper prescriptions.

The Electronic Prescription Service is now live in over 90% of GP practices and 99% of pharmacies.

EPS 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 and convenient for patients and staff.

The Electronic Prescription Service saves time, improves stock control and means that patients can collect repeat prescriptions from a pharmacy without visiting their GP.
