Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.

We encourage all patients to register for this free service using our EPS Registration form.

Extra Medication To Cover a Patients Holiday

If you are a permanent UK resident the NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to three months. Any person whose absence from the UK is longer than three months will have to make arrangements to have their medication prescribed by a practitioner in the country they are visiting.

Patients Residing Abroad

Patients now residing abroad who holiday in the UK will not be prescribed medication other than that regarded by the clinician as immediately necessary.
