NHS Electronic Prescriptions Service

Nominate your Murrays for EPS!

A new way to get your medicines and appliances. 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.

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. We may be able to dispense your repeat prescriptions more promptly in readiness for delivery to you.

  • Faster processing of your prescriptions.
  • Improved Patient Satisfaction.
  • Reliable, secure and 100% confidential.
  • Award winning customer service.
  • Qualified UK Pharmacists.
