EPS and eRD

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

Prescriptions can now be sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy; this system is more efficient and we encourage patients to use this wherever possible. Please speak to your chosen pharmacy to set this up for you, alternatively you can ask at reception. For more information on EPS please follow this link: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/pharmacies/electronic-prescription-service/

This does not affect or change the way in which you order your medication.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD)

eRD is an alternative way of getting your regular medicines without asking your GP surgey for a prescription every time. This is suitable for people on stable, repeat medications taken at the same dose regularly.

If you would like to be considered for eRD please contact the surgery, or alternatively your chosen pharmacy, who will be able to determine if this is suitable for you.
