Electronic Prescription Service
Hampton Wick Surgery offers the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), so if you have a preferred pharmacy (known as a 'nomination') for all your prescriptions to be sent to, we can arrange this for you.
If you would like to take advantage of this service and have not yet completed a nomination form, please print off this document and hand the completed form to your preferred pharmacy.

PLEASE NOTE: This service does not affect the way that you order / request prescriptions.
Benefits of EPS
- If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time coming to the practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it automatically and electronically to the place you choose (your nomination) and therefore your prescription has less chance of getting lost.
- Nearly all pharmacies are connected to this service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose - whether it's near home, work or the shops.
- You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as there will be more time to get your medication ready before you arrive at the pharmacy. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready for you.
What if I do not wish to use this Service?
If you do not wish to use this service despite the benefits, that is fine and you will not need to do anything. You will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.
