Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) utilisation dashboard

The EPS Utilisation dashboard allows GP practices and CCGs to:

  • see the variation in EPS and electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) prescribing across GP practices, within a CCG and across CCGs
  • identify the growth opportunity in each area
  • help prioritise potential areas of activity
  • monitor the impact of initiatives to increase EPS and eRD utilisation.

The dashboard supports local interventions to help drive the growth of EPS utilisation so that patients, prescribing organisations such as GP practices, and dispensing organisations such as pharmacies, experience the potential benefits of increased use of EPS and eRD.

If you're registered, access the EPS Utilisation dashboard via ePACT2. View a guide on accessing the dashboard (Word: 1.63MB)
