Electronic Prescribing Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) allows prescriptions to be sent direct to pharmacies through IT systems used in
GP surgeries. Eventually EPS will remove the need for most paper prescriptions. 99.3% of pharmacies use this system,
with approximately 22 million patients using the service nationwide; over 934,226,838 items have been dispensed using EPS.
In order to set you up on EPS, we need you to choose a nominated pharmacy where we will send your prescriptions. Some

ordering your medication.
