Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

What is it?

Electronic prescription service is an NHS service that allows your GP to send your prescription to a regular nominated pharmacy. This ensures you do not need to pick up a paper prescription saving you time. You can get the prescription sent to a pharmacy closer to where you live, work or even go on holiday (provided it’s in the UK).

Which chemist/pharmacist?

All the local pharmacies in Market Harborough and surrounding areas are signed up and they have been for years. It is not a new service, but there have been a lot of improvements over the years and we at Market Harborough and Bosworth Partnership feel now is a great time to start adapting to these innovate changes.

How can I register?

In order to “register”, all you need to do is nominate a pharmacy that you pick up your regular prescriptions from. This will serve as your prescription destination. Ask your chosen pharmacy call and speak to the prescriptions team, who can add your nomination for you, it only takes a few seconds. You can also change or re-nominate a different pharmacy at any time.

Does it cost anything?

EPS is a completely free service provided by NHS digital. It does not cost you anything, in fact, it would be encouraged and beneficial for you to start getting nominated.

What if I go on holiday?

If you go on holiday and you need a prescription/emergency supply. You can ring the surgery and your GP can send over a prescription to any EPS pharmacy within your area. This ensures you can collect your medication in a timely manner although you would have to remember to re-nominate your regular pharmacy once you are back home.

Who can collect the medication?

Medication can be collected by anyone in the usual way, this does not change. The way you order doesn’t change either. It just means you do not need to come to the practice to pick up your prescription every month on repeat and also ensures paper prescriptions are not lost and misplaced.
