A locum pharmacist smart card is a tool that allows locum pharmacists, or relief pharmacists, to work in various locations and pharmacies and have access to that site’s Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). 

The EPS contains patient information and allows for prescription information to be held and communicated between medical staff.

You can obtain a smart card by contacting your Local Registration Authority, you can do so through your local NHS Team.
