EPS – Electronic Prescription Service

A new way to get your medicines and appliances.

Please go to our EPS Page to print the nomination form. This should be sent to your Pharmacy, not the Surgery

Repeat Supplies of Medicine

Requests can be made by:

  • Post
  • Fax
  • Delivered in person
  • Ordered over the internet (please ask staff for details) or verbally asked for at reception

Please tick the appropriate box on the computer print out attached to your last prescription.

Please allow at least two clear working days (not including weekends and bank holidays). If you wish the prescription to be posted to you, please provide a stamped addressed envelope. Our staff cannot take requests over the telephone; therefore please do not wait until you run out to request repeat medication and please do not put them in an awkward situation by asking.

In some cases it may be possible to arrange collection at a local pharmacy; please ask about this at the pharmacy of your choice, the surgery cannot do this on your behalf.

  • Please request your repeat prescription in good time, as sometimes delays cannot be helped.
  • Please remember that Doctors are only human, they cannot cure all your problems and illnesses.
