Why Use An Electronic Prescription Service?

Why Use An Electronic Prescription Service?

Electronic Prescription Services (EPS) are gaining in popularity, as they save time and negate the need for paper prescriptions.  When you use an electronic prescription service via Pharmacy to My Door, there are many benefits that you may not be aware of.

What is an Electronic Prescription Service?

In their simplest form, an electronic prescription service allows GPs to send prescriptions electronically (usually through an online system) to a receiving pharmacy. This could be a pharmacy attached to the GP practice, or could be any one of a number of local pharmacies set up to receive prescriptions in this way.

When you then visit the pharmacy, the pharmacist would have already received your prescription and, depending on the time since the prescription was sent, may even have it ready for you to collect with no need to wait whilst they dispense it.
