Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

Changing the way we obtain your prescriptions

Electronic Prescribing is an NHS Service in England that allows you to change how your GP sends your prescription for medical appliances to your chosen dispenser. If your GP can process electronic prescriptions, you can choose for them to send Nightingale your prescription electronically.

What will this mean for me?

Electronic Prescribing is much more efficient. You will be able to get your appliances sooner as we won’t have to wait for the GP to post us your prescription. You won’t have to visit your GP to get your prescription, it will be sent electronically to Nightingale – saving you time.
