As of Tuesday 22nd September patients at The Village Surgery will be able to use the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
What this means for you
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop, or sent directly to your home.
For more information on the NHS EPS you can visit the Health & Social Care Information Centre Website; download their Patient Information Summary Sheet; or view or own EPS Patient Information Leaflet which can also be picked up in surgery.
