Access to Electronic Prescriptions and other functions (such as patient nominations) under EPS R2 can only be carried out with an RA01 Smartcard. Any staff members of the pharmacy team who will download EPS R2 prescriptions as part of their role MUST have their own RA01 Smartcard – it is PROHIBITED under the terms of issue to use another person’s Smartcard or allow such use of your own Smartcard in order to access EPS R2 prescriptions or any other process.
