We're working with partner organisations to help prescribers and dispensers realise the benefits of increased EPS use, particularly through electronic repeat dispensing.
Phase 4 and controlled drugs
Find out about prescribing Schedule 2 and 3 controlled drugs using EPS and about the Phase 4 pilots on the NHS Digital website.
How we can help
We've developed a series of resources to help primary care providers increase their EPS use.
Increased EPS use provides data that can be used to help providers identify suitable patients for electronic repeat dispensing (eRD).
Higher levels of eRD mean we can offer improved reports on prescribing and not dispensed items to support medicines optimisation initiatives and help reduce waste.
