Electronic Prescribing

Birchdale Road Medical Centre Practice is pleased to inform you that we now provide Electronic Prescribing Services (EPS).

Electronic Prescribing enables the practice to electronically send prescriptions to a pharmacy of a patients choice (the pharmacy must also have the EPS system). This makes prescribing and dispensing medication efficient and convenient for patients and staff.

The benefits:

  • If you collect repeat prescriptions you will not need to visit the practice to pick up your prescription, the practice would have sent it electronically to your nominated pharmacy and you can go straight there.
  • The prescription is generated electronically, so there is no paper prescription to lose.
  • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as your repeat prescriptions can be made ready before you arrive.

The following pharmacies have the EPS System so you can nominate which one is closest or convenient to you:
