EPS - You Must Nominate A Pharmacy For Your Electronic Prescription Service.

You will still order your prescriptions in the same way but they are sent to the pharmacy electronically. Note you do not have to have a computer at home for this.  If you do not so this the practice will nominate Wylde Green Pharmacy for your first order. If you request items that are not on repeat these have to be agreed with the GP and may be refused. 

Note emails to the practice should not be used for clinical queries due to confidentiality and the potential for it being urgent.
