A new way to get your medicines and appliances
The NHS is introducing the Electronic Prescription Service. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.
This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.
Different GP practices, pharmacies and dispensing appliance contractors will start using the service at different times. Ask a member of staff for more information or visit: www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients
