Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)?

EPS is an NHS-funded service in England. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the pharmacy you choose to get your medication or appliances from.

What does this mean for you?

If you currently collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP, you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.

This is a free service and you do not need to have a computer to sign up.

This is a safe confidential service ensuring prescriptions cannot be lost.

Is this service right for you?


  • If you don't want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription
  • Collect your medication from the same place most of the time

How to sign up

Please inform our reception team of your chosen pharmacy and they will add this information to your medical record.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time- please ask our reception team to change this for you.
