Phase 4 of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is the point at which electronic rather than paper prescriptions become the default.
From 18th November 2019, EPS Phase 4 will begin rolling out to more GP practices using the TPP SystmOne GP system. All community pharmacy teams should therefore be aware that they may receive EPS Phase 4 tokens to process.
Full rollout for TPP SystmOne GP system practices will take place in the coming weeks and months on a location by location basis.
Under EPS Phase 4, patients can choose to take their token to any pharmacy in England. If you receive a Phase 4 token, simply scan the barcode and dispense it as you would any other electronic prescription.
