Exciting News the ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING SERVICE is on its way!

From Wednesday 1st March 2023, Townhead Surgery will be using the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS).

If you are a dispensing patient you don’t need to take any action.

If you are a non-dispensing patient please ensure you have selected your nominated pharmacy on the NHS app. or go in and speak to your pharmacy, Many thanks.

Update from the NHS App Service desk, NHS England……

Our investigations show your practice as a dispensing practice therefore the nominated pharmacy functionality will not be available.

Unfortunately, due to your GP surgery’s setup, you cannot nominate a different pharmacy using the NHS App. We’re looking at ways of making this available to you in the future.

To change your nominated pharmacy, you’ll need to speak to your community pharmacy, as they can carry this out on your behalf. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Surgery update…….

We know from patients registered with us that if you use the SystmOnline app or the Airmid UK app that you can change your nominated pharmacy on there. If you would like to register for online services, please bring along one photo ID, one address ID and fill in a registration form at reception.

We would like to thank you for your continued support.
