A FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section on the NHS website can be seen
EPS - Electronic Prescription Service
EPS is where prescriptions that you request via email, in writing or via the Online Patient Access are sent (electronically) to the pharmacist of your choice.
This is enirely separate and different to the above 'Patient Online Access' and you do not need to sign up for online access in order to get EPS. All you need to do to get EPS, is to let us know where you want your prescriptions sent, by 'nominating' your preferred pharmacy. If you could find the postcode of the pharmacy before you ring us, this will help us locate it on our system.
