From the 3rd February 2015 Campden Surgery will be using the NHS Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS).
Under this service, instead of a paper prescription being printed and collected, the prescription can be sent electronically to the patient's chosen pharmacy or Appliance Company.
This is an optional service: if you want your prescriptions to be sent electronically, you must speak to your chosen pharmacy and nominate them officially.
Patients will not automatically have their prescriptions sent this way - it is an OPT-IN service.
The NHS EPS is a secure and confidential service and your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people who see your paper prescription now (GP practice staff, pharmacy staff, NHS prescription payment and fraud prevention agencies)
