EPS requirements

We have provided requirements for prescribing and dispensing systems integrating with the Electronic Prescription Service.

These are the requirements for the EPS components only. Systems will also need to meet wider NHS Spine integration requirements including Spine Demographics, Spine Messaging, Spine Directory Service and Spine Security Broker.

Systems may also need to meet non-functional requirements listed in any NHS Digital agreements.   

You may find it useful to read the EPS integration walk through to understand how to use these documents.

Some of the documents only relate to prescribing or dispensing systems, others are common to both.
