COVID-19: GUIDANCE FOR EMPLOYEES
“EPS4 goes live at Penny’s Hill Practice on 10th March 2020. If your prescriptions are already sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy then there is minimal change. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, your prescription will be sent electronically to the NHS Spine and a pharmacy of your choice will then retrieve your prescription when you go to collect this by advising them of your NHS number. If you do not know your NHS number, ask your doctor when they are issuing you your prescription. Prescription tokens are also sometimes generated, however you can still get your prescription without these. If you do not currently have a nominated pharmacy but would like to nominate one, please speak to reception.”
