Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescriptions 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 prescription medicines or appliances from.

What does this mean for you?

  • If you collect your prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit Moreton Health Clinic to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
  • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

Is this service right for you?

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:

  • Do not want to come to the surgery every time to collect your repeat prescription.
  • Collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.

It may not be if you:

  • Do not get prescriptions very often.
  • Pick up your medicines from different places.

How can you use EPS?

You need to choose a place for Moreton Health Clinic to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose:

  • A pharmacy
  • A dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one)

Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or ask at Moreton Health Clinic to add your nomination for you. 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 then tell your GP or one of the reception team. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speakto any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, again you can just do this at the surgery. Tell us 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 Moreton Health Clinic, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your 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 repeat prescriptions.
