Digitising Medicines Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) workshop webinar

You are invited to join NHS Digital and NHSX for an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) workshop webinar, delivered in partnership with techUK

On 1 March 2021, we hosted an Interoperable Medicines Standards webinar where we provided an update on the progress made so far and set out plans and priorities for the next phases of work. You can revisit a video of the recording.

As part of that webinar we canvassed audience opinion on a range of subjects and set out our desire for you to support and contribute to future developments and functional enhancements. One area that was of particular interest was EPS. We are therefore hosting a follow-on workshop that will build on the content covered in the first event.

The session will provide a general overview of the EPS, how it currently works and the plans to expand both access and functionality. Following the general introduction, you will have the choice of joining your preferred virtual workshop where you will have the opportunity to pose questions and challenge the team to provide greater understanding on the following themes:

Workshop A - EPS Essentials (for those new to developing and implementing EPS)

  1. Product-based prescribing
  2. When and how to send prescriptions to different dispensers
  3. Electronic repeat dispensing

Workshop B - EPS Futures (for those looking to develop enhanced EPS functionality)

  1. Antimicrobial / medicines stewardship
  2. Instalment prescribing of CDs (FP10MDA)
  3. Removing the current EPS restriction of 4 items per prescription

We will then bring the group back together for feedback and discuss next steps. Both workshops will be recorded and shared afterwards.

Joining instructions will be sent via email approximately 48 hours before the event date. We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
