The end of printed prescriptions at OPS

Oaks Place Surgery have moved into Phase 4 of the Electronic Prescription Service which means that 100% of our prescriptions are transferred electronically to a pharmacy of your choosing. We are asking patients to choose a local pharmacy where they don’t have one nominated already.

Due to Covid-19 – this has been enormously helpful in getting medication to patients without contact.

EPS Phase 4 will take EPS one step further and make electronic prescriptions the most common method of issuing prescriptions. Patients without a nomination will receive a prescription token that they can take to a pharmacy of their choice (this will be sent via SMS link or PATCHS.) A prescription token looks like a prescription but cannot be used in the same way as a prescription.
