EPS scripts now over 95% of total items

Electronic prescriptions sent via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) now represent more than 95% of all prescriptions dispensed by community pharmacies in England.*

One-off nomination is now available in many GP practices and other care settings, allowing prescriptions to be sent to an alternative pharmacy without affecting a patient’s existing nominations and avoiding the need for paper prescriptions to be issued by prescribers.

The latest figures show that more than 95% of GP practices are now using Phase 4 EPS.

*NHSBSA confirmed the volumes at the latest pharmacy IT group meeting.
