Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) will soon replace paper prescriptions in GP practices in England. This means that prescriptions will instead be sent electronically by the GP to a pharmacy of your choice. You will no longer be able to collect a paper repeat prescription from the Practice – instead, you will go straight to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. Furthermore, because your pharmacist has already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare your items in advance, so you may be able pick it up with no extra wait. We are therefore asking our patients to nominate an EPS pharmacy. Please speak to a member of staff to update your preference. Click here for further information
pregabalin & gabapentin
From 1st April 2019 Pregabalin and Gabapentin will be reclassified as ‘controlled drugs’. Please ensure that you request any prescriptions in plenty of time, to help us to manage the transition process. If you would like to discuss any issues regarding your medicines, please contact the Practice to have a ‘shared decision-making’ conversation with your GP.
