About the Electronic Prescriptions in Urgent Care programme

The Electronic Prescriptions in Urgent Care e-learning programme has been created for prescribers in integrated urgent care who wish to use the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) to issue prescriptions.

The short, interactive e-learning resource, developed by NHS Digital, will take you through the EPS prescribing process step-by-step. It should be completed by both medical and non-medical prescribers before using the live EPS system.

Please note, the Electronic Prescription content does not support MS Edge at this time.

In the event that you do not qualify for free access to the Electronic Prescriptions in Urgent Care programme via the e-LfH Hub, you may be able to access the service via OpenAthens.

First check whether or not you qualify for direct access by clicking on the Register button via the following link https://nhsdigital.e-lfh.org.uk/. After entering your work email address, you will be directed to enter additional details about your role and location. If you are presented with alternative registration options, your email address has not been recognised and you will not qualify for direct access to the Electronic Prescriptions in Urgent Care programme.
