EPS Nomination – Patient Information

  • Nomination is not mandatory. Patients do not have to nominate a pharmacy to receive their prescriptions
  • If nomination is set, prescriptions are sent electronically to the nominated dispenser unless you explicitly opt for paper, or the item can only go on paper (e.g. an item not listed on the NHS database)
  • Nominating a pharmacy and using the EPS means there is no need to collect a paper prescription from the GP
  • The patient can choose which pharmacy to nominate (if at all) and is not restricted to a nearby pharmacy
  • Patients can ask to set, change or remove their nomination at any time
  • Patients do not need computer access to nominate a pharmacy or use EPS
  • The service is currently only available in England
  • If your GP practice is not enabled with EPS, they won’t start using electronic prescriptions until the practice goes live with the service
