Nomination Important Information

Please read before Nomination
 The EPS involves the electronic transmission of prescriptions safely and any dispensing contractor operating Release 2 can be nominated.

 Patients are not restricted to nominating a dispensing contractor located close to their GP practice. 

 Where patients use their nominated dispensing contractor, their prescription will be sent automatically to that dispensing contractor. 

 If the patient chooses not to use their nominated dispenser for a particular  prescription, they must notify the practice at the time of requesting the prescription.

 The patient can change their nominations at any time –this includes when  they are part way through a repeat dispensing cycle; The remaining prescriptions which have not been downloaded will be accessed by the new 
nominated contractor. 

 Patients will be able to change their nominated dispensing contractor at their GP practice and any dispensing contractor.
 Where a patient has nominated a dispensing contractor, the dispensing contractor will usually be able to access the electronic prescription in advance of the patient arriving – allowing them to prepare the prescription in advance .

 If the patient goes to a different dispensing contractor to the one they have nominated, there may be delays before the dispensary is able to access the prescription 
 Further information available from the  leaflet 
‘Explaining the Electronic Prescription Service – Information for patients and carers in England’ 
You may ask for your nomination to be set, changed or removed at any time simply by asking a member of staff at any Release 2 enabled dispensing contractor or your GP practice. 

All Release 2 enabled sites will display the EPS Release 2 sign in a prominent position to signify to patients that: 
  • They can nominate at that site 
  • More information is available about the service at that site 
You  can find out which dispensing contractors are Release 2 enabled (and can therefore be nominated) by using the search facility on www.nhs.uk. 

Alternatively, you can ask a member of staff at your GP practice or any  pharmacy who will be able to identify which sites are Release 2 enabled using their local prescribing or dispensing system.
