Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
- If you 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.
- 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.
- You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescription to be ready before your arrive.
For further clarification please feel free to contact the practice and speak to our Medicine Manager (Jackie)

The Friends and Family Test is a new contractual requirement from December 2014, and it is for practices to offer all patients the opportunity to complete the test and then publish the results. It is for patients to provide feedback on the care and treatment they have received and to help improve services. You can complete the questionnaire by follwoing the link on this hompage on the right hand side or you can simply fill in the questionnaire next time you visit the surgery.
