Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions Web Services - SOAP API

Access the NHS UK Web Services to retrieve dispensaries information for a patient.

Overview

Use this API to access dispenser information for a patient via NHS UK Web Services.

You can:

  • search for and obtain dispenser information using a valid NACS code
  • search for and obtain dispenser information by name and the service type or EPS status
  • search for and obtain dispenser using name and location and the service type or EPS status
  • search for and obtain dispenser using postcode and the service type or EPS status

This API also provides data to the Electronic Prescription Service Directory of Services API.

Use this API if you are building GP software - it provides information such as dispensing appliance contractors that isn't available through Electronic Prescription Service Directory of Services API.
