The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is changing
EPS is a free and easy secure service, which sends your prescription electronically from your doctor’s surgery to your chosen pharmacy. EPS is replacing the need for most paper prescriptions, working towards a paper free NHS.
Patients without a nominated pharmacy will automatically receive electronic prescriptions - a prescription token will be issued to you to take to any pharmacy.
More than 28 million patients already have a nomination. Their nomination will remain valid and nothing will change. The practice can track where and when your prescription was dispensed.
By using EPS, patients benefit from:
- collecting repeat prescriptions directly from their pharmacy without having to visit the GP
- paper prescriptions not getting lost
- less time spent waiting in pharmacies and GP practices
- a reliable, secure and confidential service
Patients can find out more by going to www.nhs.uk/EPS.

The NHS Friends & Family Test
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to help us to improve services. Your answer is voluntary, but if you do answer, your feedback will provide valuable information to celebrate good practice, and identify opportunities to make improvements. If you would like to participate in the NHS Friends and Family Test, please complete the simple questionnaire available in the practice and post it into the Friends and Family Test collection box in the reception area.
