A name adopted by Lancashire Local Pharmaceutical Committee.

EPS

With the vast amount of prescriptions issued each day across the whole of the UK it has become necessary to introduce the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), this allowing pharmacies to cope with the huge volume of prescriptions that is set to rise by at least 5% each year.

The EPS will allow for a massive reduction in paper prescriptions which will have a knock on effect with the patients, freeing them of long waiting times in the pharmacy, reducing GP visits for repeat prescriptions and giving patients the opportunity to choose which pharmacy they wish to collect their prescription from.

The EPS system will allow each pharmacist more time to dedicate to the welfare of the patient.
