Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions


Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions

We can accept nominations from our NHS customers for Windmill Pharmacy to receive prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery.NHS_EPS_250

What is ETP?

ETP is a service which allows patients to nominate a pharmacy to receive their prescriptions electronically.

What does this mean to me?

With your GP being able to send prescriptions electronically (hence the phrase ‘electronic transfer of prescriptions) you will no longer have to go to the surgery and queue to collect your prescription. Your pharmacist will be able to download your prescription electronically via a secure NHS network.

Why should I nominate Windmill Pharmacy

  • We carry a large stock of pharmacy medicines in this area and so most items will be available IMMEDIATELY.
  • We operate a free prescription ordering and/or delivery service.
  • If there is a problem/query with your prescription it will be resolved quickly
  • Our computer systems are maintained to a high standard and are secure and up-to-date.

Can I change the pharmacy I nominate?

Yes, at any time. Just ask the pharmacist.

Can my GP/Nurse/Practice staff nominate a pharmacy?

No this would be unprofessional.
