Electronic Prescription Service Directory of Services API
Use this API to access information about dispensing services, including searching for dispensers who can provide services for a patient with a given location and urgency.
search for a dispenser by its location and opening hours
search for a specific dispenser that the patient might have named
The API combines data from both the Directory of Services (DoS) and Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP) web services (formerly known as NHS Choices).
It uses DoS for user authentication.
Do not use this API if you are building GP software - instead use Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP) web services directly, as it provides access to information you'll need, for example, information such as dispensing appliance contractors.
