Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) - How It Works

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) – How It Works

A new way to get your prescriptions in Streatham!

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. The prescription your GP gives you is sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. EPS is confidential, secure and reliable.

You can nominate a pharmacy near where you live, work or shop. Pharmacies and GP practices that offer EPS will display the sign shown above left – staff there can add your nomination for you. Nominations can be changed or cancelled at any time.

Your nominated pharmacy wili get your prescription before you arrive and can order medicines if they are out of stock, so it should save you time. If you prefer to get paper prescriptions you do not have to nominate.

Ask at your Pharmacy or GP Practice or visit www.cfh.nhs.uk/eps
