EPS - Electronic Prescribing Service
This is a new service which will send your prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice electronically. If you wish to sign up to this service you can do so either by applying via the pharmacy of your choice or coming into the surgery to let us know which pharmacy you wish your prescriptions to go to.
In March 2017 alone we produced 11,304 prescriptions, PLEASE HELP US BY REGISTERING FOR ONLINE SERVICES.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- By Hand – drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By Post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- Online – (recommended) please bring in one form of photo ID to register
Please note we do require 72 hours notice to complete prescription requests.
Please note we DO NOT accept requests by telephone or through any chemist or via email.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, Practice Based Clinical Pharmacist or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow 72 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
