CCG leads way with latest electronic prescription upgrade live in all GP practices

NHS Portsmouth CCG has been piloting the latest improvement to the Electronic Prescription Services (EPS), known as Phase 4.

This allows prescriptions for all patients to be sent using the more efficient digital system and not just those who have chosen a regular nominated dispenser, NHS Digital has reported.

Portsmouth CCG is the first in the country to have 100 per cent of their GP practices able to use EPS. Once the NHS Digital system is rolled out across England, it is estimated it will save the NHS £130m a year.
