The process for listing PCTs in the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) Authorisation Directions 2008 as amended has restarted.
A letter and supporting documents from Susan Grieve, Principal Pharmacist, and Ian Lowry, Director of National Applications, sets out the process that SHAs need to follow to request Secretary of State Directions for PCTs.
EPS will allow a patient’s prescription to be sent electronically from their GP to a pharmacy. Patients can nominate a preferred pharmacy. Dispensers will be able to submit reimbursement claims electronically.
