3 What is nomination? Nomination is the record on the spine of the patient’s choice of Appliance Contractor, Community Pharmacy and Dispensing Doctor (if applicable). Nomination is not the same as the preferred pharmacy printed on a script and should be explained to the patient by the pharmacy. Patient nomination is not mandatory and is more suitable for some patients than others, however nominations recorded on the spine are shared to GP systems

4 Electronic Prescribing Key Changes Pharmacies should explain nomination and patients will change their mind. GP practices may not issue a prescribing token so the pharmacy will need to have dispensing tokens available. Future dated scripts are only available at the pharmacy on the date of issue. Patients suitable for nomination are those with a current paper scripts that prints with a bar code. Practices are told to avoid sending split scripts - all drugs need to be compatible as repeats not issued are part of the message. Dispensers will no longer need to retain paper repeat dispensing scripts

5 Prescription and dispensing tokens Paper copies of electronic prescriptions are called tokens Tokens will always need to be made available, if required, by the GP practice or the pharmacy There are two types of token, known as prescription tokens and dispensing tokens

10 Local Benefits of EPS Reception and GPs have spent less time dealing with urgent scripts the time spent on reprinting and interrupting a GP to get an urgent script signed is reduced. An EPS script does not get lost and reception do not have to file prior to collection. Using EPS has increased the number of patients using repeat dispensing. GPs view EPS as providing a slicker process for telephone triage. The post it notes and queries attached to scripts prior to signing are now saved to the system. Pharmacies don’t have to wait until lunchtime and get more time to obtain the drugs htmlhttp://systems.hscic.gov.uk/eps/gppractice/getstarted/index_ html
