Electronic Prescription Service Is A Better Option

Today, electronic prescription is promptly contributing to the extinction of the hand-written prescription. The doctor’s advised medicines are types into the computer and off they flow to the drugstore through the internet.

The National Health Service (NHS) introduced the Electronic Prescription service (EPS) for UK citizens only. The service reduces the need for visiting a GP to pick up paper prescriptions.

It is imperative that you choose the right place to send your prescription and collect your medicine. Choosing a pharmacy to get started with electronic prescription service is called Nomination. You can choose the most reliable and convenient pharmacy that is near to you.

The GP practice or chemist will record your nomination for you. It is flexible and you can change or cancel it after talking to your GP and pharmacist.

After nomination, your GP sends your prescription electronically to the pharmacy so that you can collect or receive your regular medications. Your prescription is safely sent by your GP using the NHS secure database, and will only be seen by your GP, pharmacy and NHS authorities.

Your nominated pharmacy will get the electronic prescription from your GP to dispense your medicines. The prescription is an electronic script; hence, there is no paper to lose.

  • can process prescriptions more proficiently

  • spend less time resolving prescription queries
