You have the option of using the “Electronic Prescription Service” (EPS) which will mean that your prescriptions will go directly to a pharmacy of your choice. With EPS this means that you no longer have to come to the to pick up your repeat prescriptions, you can go straight to your nominated pharmacy.
You still need to allow two working days from the time of your request.
Unfortunately certain medications cannot be done through EPS due to safety reasons.
These medications include:
- Controlled drugs like (Tramadol, Morphine, Oramorph, Fentanyl)
- Private prescriptions
If you are interested in knowing more or signing up for EPS please contact your pharmacy of choice and they will be able to provide you with further information and a sign up form. Alternatively if you have an account for Patient Access you can nominate your pharmacy of choice through that website.
