National roll-out of electronic prescriptions

23/10/2019

In future all prescriptions will be issued electronically, with the national rollout of the existing service starting next month.

The electronic prescription service (EPS) helps GPs and pharmacists prescribe and dispense medicines faster and more securely and makes it easier for patients to pick up repeat prescriptions. The EPS has been tested with 60 GP practices and hundreds of pharmacies and already accounts for almost 70% of all prescriptions.
