The national roll out of controlled drugs (CDs) in EPS starts on Thursday 28 February for TPP SystmOne and Vision GP practices. The number of CD prescriptions received in Community Pharmacies via EPS will increase significantly. The roll out will take approx. 10 days to complete and will include all General Practices in England that use SystmOne and Vision GP practices.

The electronic processing of prescriptions for Schedule 2 & 3 Controlled Drugs will make the process safer and more secure. It’s important for all pharmacy teams to understand how the changes affect them and staff should be prepared to dispense an electronic prescription for a CD.
