Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The Headlands Surgery is pleased to announce the launch of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
With EPS you order your prescriptions in the usual way, but you can collect your medication without the green paper prescription. Your prescription will be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.
To use this service you will need to NOMINATE (choose) which pharmacy you would like your prescription to be sent to.
You can choose a pharmacy anywhere in England, as long as they are ready for EPS (over 95% are).
To nominate to use EPS please talk to your pharmacy or to a receptionist at the surgery.
Please be aware that not all medications can be prescribed electronically – your GP surgery or pharmacy should be able to advise you further.
