Nominate pharmacy

Note: Certain services, such as viewing your medical record, nominating a pharmacy, changing contact details and messaging, are only available to practices in England and certain parts of Northern Ireland at this time. Your practice decides which of the available services they make available to their patients.

EPS (Electronic Prescription Service) makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to your pharmacy of choice. Your pharmacy of choice is referred to as your nominated pharmacy. This means you no longer have to collect paper prescriptions from your GP practice, and instead can go straight to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.

More information on the service can be located here. Check with your GP practice to see if they offer the service.
