ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING SERVICE (EPS)
Rosevilla Surgery is now offering patients the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). This service enables prescribers - such as GPs and practice nurses - 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.
Start using EPS
Ask a member of the Reception team or at any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS to add your nomination for you. Nomination means you choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. You don't need a computer to use EPS. You can choose up to one of each of the following:
- a pharmacy
- a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one)
- a dispensing pharmacy contractor (if you use one)
Once you are signed up to use EPS, you will no longer receive a paper prescription from the surgery. Instead your prescription will be electronically delivered to your selected pharmacy or dispensing contractor.
PLEASE BE AWARE that some medication cannot be sent electronically. Items like controlled drugs (temazepam, diazepam, morphine, tramadol etc) and some dressings and other items will still require a paper prescription to be physically picked up by you or your nominated pharmacy. If you are unsure of all the items on your prescription can be sent electronically, speak to your pharmacy or visit reception.
