GP practice process for signing EPS prescriptions

GP practice process for signing EPS prescriptions

GP practice staff can prepare electronic prescriptions, and assign these to a prescriber.

Prescribers can:

  • electronically sign prescriptions individually or select multiples to sign in bulk;
  • consider appropriate times for signing prescriptions (and may consider adding a recurring diary entry or calendar note to act as reminders at certain times throughout the day).

If a certain prescriber is busy, a prescription can be reassigned to another prescriber by practice staff.

Prescribers electronically sign prescription, causing these to be sent to the central NHS Spine, so that a pharmacy can download (‘pull down’) them.
