Electronic Prescription Service - HL7 V3 API
Use this API to access the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). EPS allows a prescriber (such as a GP) to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
You can do different things, depending on your role.
As a prescriber you can:
send prescriptions to EPS
As a dispenser you can:
receive prescriptions from EPS
confirm a prescription is dispensed
claim for a dispensed prescription
A healthcare worker must be present and authenticated with an NHS smartcard or a modern alternative to use this API.
