A new way to get your Medicines and Appliances
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. HHR Medical can send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. What does this mean for you ?
If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with no chance of it getting lost.
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 for your prescription items, as there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock, they can be ordered in ready for you.

Symptoms of Ebola virus disease
A person infected with Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, a headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat, and intense muscle weakness. These symptoms start suddenly between 2 and 21 days after becoming infected.
Diarrhoea, vomiting, a rash, stomach pain and impaired kidney and liver function follow. The patient then bleeds internally, and may also bleed from the ears, eyes, nose or mouth.
Ebola virus disease is fatal in 50-90% of cases. The sooner a person is given care, the better the chances that they will survive.
