Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

You can now sign up with your local pharmacy to this new service. Your repeat prescriptions can be electronically sent through to your nominated Pharmacy, with no need to call into the Surgery to pick up your paper prescription.

Rowlands Pharmacy Rock Ferry is attached to our premises. Their telephone number is: 0151 645 3131.

Changes to your medication

From time to time your medication may change:-

  • from a tablet to capsule or vice versa
  • from one brand to another
  • another equivalent medication

Your Doctor will only do this if the new medication is as good as or better at treating your condition.

If you have any queries about these changes to your medication please speak to a member of staff at the practice or if you prefer your local Pharmacist.

Making such changes helps to ensure that every penny spent on your local NHS is spent wisely.

This Practice participates in the Wirral Prescribing Incentive Scheme. This scheme aims to increase the quality and cost effectiveness of prescribing.
