Electronic Prescription Service - EPS

30/04/2014

Dear Patient,

You may have been told by your chemist about a new service that is starting soon called EPS - this is short for Electronic Prescription Service.

If you register with your chemist for EPS, it will mean that when a GP at Churchill decides to give you a prescription, it will not be printed off at the surgery and signed by the GP, but instead will be sent electronically straight to the Chemist that you have registered with.

Patients need to be aware that EPS HAS NOT YET GONE LIVE IN THE KINGSTON AREA.

The system will be set up centrally for the whole of the Borough, and Churchill as a practice have not yet been advised of a date when the system will be available.

As soon as we have been given the appropriate guidance by Kingston CCG, we will of course advise patients accordingly.

Kind Regards,

Churchill Medical Centre
