What is an Electronic Prescription Service?

  • Updated

An Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a system where your GP practice sends your prescriptions directly to your nominated pharmacy, rather than printing out a paper prescription.

When your pharmacy gets your prescription, we can get to work fulfilling it and sending it out to you as quickly as possible.

Here at Chemist4U, we aim to dispense all of our prescriptions the same day we receive them from your GP, then we’ll send them to your chosen address using Royal Mail or our local courier service where possible.

This service is completely free.

This means that you’ll usually have your prescription in your hand within just 48 hours of your GP approving it, depending on stock availability and cut-off times. Learn more and sign up here
