Electronic Prescription Service – coming soon

Clifton Road Surgery will be offering EPS from Thursday 4th June 2015. if you nominate a pharmacy, your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy.

If you would like to take advantage of this service please obtain and complete a nomination form, available from your pharmacy and hand the completed form to your pharmacy. 

This will not affect the way that you order / request prescriptions.

Benefits for you

  •         If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.
  •         Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose – whether it’s near home, work or the shops.
  •         You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready for you.

What happens if I do not wish to use the service?

Nothing- you will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.
