What is EPS?

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS Service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescriptions to the pharmacy.

Electronic Prescription Service Information

What does this mean 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 Pharmacy2U, saving you time.

Is this service right for you?

  • YES if you have a stable condition and you don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.
  • YES if you want to have your medicines delivered
  • IT MAY NOT BE if you if don’t get prescriptions very often or want to pick up your medicines from different places.

How can you use EPS?

  • You need to choose your pharmacy to receive the electronic prescription. This is called nomination.
  • Any pharmacy operating full EPS can be nominated; Patients are not restricted to nominating a pharmacy near their GP practice. However, you can only nominate one pharmacy at a time.
  • To nominate Pharmacy2U all you need to do is click here or call our customer service team on 0113 265 0222.

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

  • YES you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP.
  • If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to your GP practice or any pharmacist that offers EPS. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
