Enhancements survey

Help shape the future of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). We want to know what enhancements to EPS dispensers and pharmacy staff want to see. Complete our EPS enhancements survey and tell us what enhancements you'd like us to prioritise or suggest your own.

Would you prefer automatic downloads or prescription collation to be included in EPS first? Would you prioritise adding an alert about urgent antibiotics to the script over automatically cancelling all outstanding repeat dispensing regimes when a patient leaves their practice?

The 19 enhancements proposed in the survey are based on feedback from users and other stakeholders.

The EPS enhancements survey takes around 10 minutes.
New benefits estimator tool

Find out how much Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is saving you by using the new EPS estimator tool.

The tool can calculate the estimated savings that your practice or pharmacy is achieving in both time and money. It can also identify what additional benefits could be achieved if you used EPS more. Based on independent studies a number of benefits of EPS were identified, including:
  • pharmacies save an average of 43 minutes every day as a result of fewer trips to GP practices to collect FP10s
  • pharmacists reported that they are saving an average of 54 minutes every day as a result of faster dispensing
All you need are a few key statistics about your current use of EPS and the EPS estimator tool will help you find them.
