EPS Prescription Tracker
The Prescription Tracker allows healthcare professionals to track the status of EPS prescriptions. For example, it will let you know if an EPS script has left the prescribing site and is on the Spine, if it has been downloaded or if it has been dispensed. The tool is particularly valuable if pharmacies have problems downloading an EPS prescription.
The tracker should be checked before contacting a GP practice to enquire about an EPS prescription as you may be able to resolve the issue in-house. Pharmacy and GP practice staff can search for prescriptions using the prescription barcode, the date range and the patient’s NHS number. To access the tool, pharmacies need to be logged via their Smartcard and click on https://portal2.national.ncrs.nhs.uk/prescriptionsadmin.
