The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is now available for dispensing doctors that use the EMIS Web prescribing system, alongside EMIS ProScript Connect in their practice dispensary.
NHS Digital has worked with EMIS to assure a solution which allows eligible patients to nominate their practice and have their prescriptions sent using EPS.
EPS is already used for 63 per cent of prescriptions in primary care and makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
The system is currently available for practices using the EMIS Web prescribing system who have a single dispensary.
Dispensing doctors interested in implementing the system at their practice can contact Practice Services UK (PSUK) on 01904 558 350 for more information.
