Fed up with paper prescriptions? Prefer to have them sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy? Then ask us about EPS 2
Many local pharmacies are already using EPS 2, and Westongrove Partnership start using the system on Tuesday 3rd December. EPS 2 allows patients to nominate a chosen pharmacy to receive their prescriptions electronically instead of using paper prescriptions. You can nominate a pharmacy either by telling a member of the pharmacy staff, or one of the team at the surgery - they will be able to update your preference on their systems. You are free to change your preference whenever you wish - really handy if you are on holiday in the UK and forget your meds.
The surgery staff use an electronic system to request the script, the doctor signs it electronically and send it directly to the pharmacy who then download the prescription and dispense the medication. No more bits of paper, no lost prescriptions and a clear audit trail every step of the way. You can read more at https://systems.hscic.gov,uk/eps/library/summary.pdf
Just let us know if you would like to use EPS 2

WHAT IS WESTONGROVE PARTNERSHIP?
Westongrove Partnership comprises Bedgrove Surgery, Aston Clinton Surgery and Wendover Health Centre and was formed in 1998. By working together, rather than as isolated practices, we believe that we can more readily explore potential opportunities, share good practice and develop innovative ways of providing care across the locality.
Each site has a team of GP Partners & Salaried GPs that make up the Doctor team, along with a Nursing team and non--clinical staff. More details can be found under the green tab 'The Team', shown on the left hand menu.
Our aim is to encourage the good health and well-being of our patients by providing the highest standards of healthcare and a diversity of clinics appropriate to the needs of the community. Our highly-skilled, multidisciplinary professional Primary Health Care Team (PHCT) will promote health education and work with patients to achieve a standard of excellence that reflects our commitment to patient care. We endeavour to ensure that the service we provide is always delivered by the most appropriate member of our PHCT.
We use our surgery website as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice. We keep it current with any news, developments & details that are relevant to the practice & our patients.
