RPOS – Repeat Prescription Ordering System

RPOS is a NHS England directed initiative.  As from the 2nd September 2019 community pharmacies and third party companies will no longer be able to order medication from the practice on behalf of patients. Patients will be required to order their own medication directly with the practice. This can be done by:

  • Online ordering from the practice
  • Calling the prescriptions line (01325 318697)
  • Using the tear off part of the repeat prescription, identifying the items required

There will be no restrictions on community pharmacies and third party companies collecting prescriptions on patient’s behalf, to prepare prescriptions in advance and arranging delivery of medicines.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

EPS is a NHS England directed initiative.  From 1st January 2020 we will be sending all repeat prescriptions to pharmacies electronically.  All patients receiving repeat medication will need to choose a pharmacy by 31 December 2019 at the latest.

From 1st January 2020 you will no longer be able to collect your repeat prescription from our surgery, only your chosen pharmacy.

For more information please see our noticeboards in Reception or speak to one of our reception staff.
