New ePharmacy Verification Certificate to be Downloaded

Wednesday, September 2, 2020


The renewal of the ePharmacy Verification certificate which is used to secure the content of some message responses from the ePharmacy Message store is due by the 13th October 2020.  After this date, if the new certificate has not been installed, pharmacies will no longer be able to download new AMS or CMS prescriptions.  If you have not already updated your system, instructions for downloading and automatically deploying the replacement certificate can be found at the following location http://www.eps.nds.scot.nhs.uk/vertcert/install.html

All pharmacies with the exception of Boots, Lloyds, Superdrug and Rowlands branches or users of Clanwilliam Health’s Rx Web & EMIS Health’s ProScript Connect systems are required to download the replacement certificate as soon as possible.  If any issues are encountered please contact the ePharmacy Helpdesk, telephone: 0131 275 6600 or email: nss.psdhelp@nhs.scot
