New phase of Electronic Prescription Service
Posted on 28 Jan 2020
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 13th February 2020.
It is advisable for all patients to specify a nominated pharmacy. There will be no more signed paper prescriptions, a token with a unique bar code can be issued instead.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
