Electronic prescriptions, also known as E-scripts, are an alternative to paper prescriptions.
e-Script: An e-Script holds all the information a regular paper script would, but in a simple token. E-Scripts make it easier for you to access your medication whenever and wherever, under any circumstances.
Active Script list: A “Active Script list” is a digital wallet containing your scripts that you can access directly from your phone. Once your doctor prescribes you an e-Script, it is automatically added to your “Active Script List”, which we can see, and other pharmacies can also see. This means you can never lose a script!
Paper prescriptions are still available if you choose, however, an electronic prescription allows you to have total control of your health and prescriptions in the palm of your hand.
Contact your local GP to find out if they offer e-Scripts!
