Electronic Prescription Service

What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)?
EPS is an NHS funded service in England. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the healthcare professional you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
If you currently collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be more time for your repeat
prescriptions to be prepared before you arrive.
For more information about EPS visit www.cfh.nhs.uk/eps, or ask your pharmacy or talk to us.

If you are interested in having this vasectomy procedure please make an appointment with your normal GP and ask them to refer you  via Choose and Book or by standard referral letter. Choose and Book is where your GP will offer you the choice of provider and may be able to give you an indication of waiting list time.

What is a Vasectomy?

Vasectomy is the division of the vas deferens that carry a man's sperm from his testicles. Vasectomy prevents sperm from being added to the man's ejaculation fluid (semen); therefore, he can no longer make a woman pregnant. The sperm containing fluid that is blocked by vasectomy constitutes only 3% of a man's semen volume, therefore, a man will not notice any changes in his semen. Vasectomy is simply an effective, inexpensive, easy-to-perform method of contraception.

What is the No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV)?

No-scalpel vasectomyis a safe, minimally invasive procedure that reduces vasectomy's already low complication rate. The NSV was developed in China by Dr. Shunqiang Li in 1974. Instead of cutting the scrotal skin, the skin is punctured and the vas is delivered with two special instruments. Over 15 million men have undergone the NSV procedure worldwide since 1974. It is rapidly becoming the standard vasectomy technique in the United Kingdom.
