Current Project Stage: EPS Release 1 & 2 Commentary Project is progressing well in Practices. Robust links forged with CfH.    Pharmacy Leads have nominated a lead person to update the tracking database. Tracking Database function set up for South Glos, Bristol, North Somerset PCT’s. There has been a really positive response from Practices, most have been eager to participate. EMIS PCS, note that PCS WAN / SAN sites which were not actively using EPS previously, have had EPS functionality disabled on a temporary basis. Issues identified during the roll out of PCS means that EMIS & CFH have agreed to delay further enablement of the EPS module until all sites are updated to a single accredited baseline which has addressed these issues. This is expected to take 4 to 6 weeks. Sites which are already successfully using EPS will remain enabled.
