Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) — Afternoon

Thursday, 16th November 2017 / 14.00pm

GPs, Practice Managers and Prescribing Leads are invited to attend this half day Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) workshop produced by Camden CCG IT & Systems Team in collaboration with the MMT.
EPS allows prescriptions to be sent directly to pharmacies through IT systems used in GP Practices, and eventually EPS will reduce the need for paper prescriptions. Within the Core GP contract 2017-18 an EPS target of 80% was set for all GP Practices, the average across Camden CCG is currently 62%.
For many of Camden GP Practices the next step is to increase EPS pharmacy nominations and identify suitable patients for EPS in order to increase GP Practice utilisation throughout Camden CCG.
During the workshop we will highlight the benefits of EPS and realistic ways to increase the utilisation of EPS in GP Practices – there will be input from a GP and case studies from other CCGs where EPS has been successfully utilised within GP Practices. There will also be discussion around the best ways to engage local pharmacies and patients, and how ePACT data analysis from the NHS Business Service Authority will be able to be used in the future to help GP Practices identify suitable patients for EPS.
