[Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions (ETP)]

At Wootton Pharmacy we are now able to process electronic prescriptions generated by your doctor’s surgery. Not all GPs are using the new software yet, but if your prescription has a bar code printed on the right hand side, then we scan and dispense it as usual.
This is phase one of a national programme that will, in the future, lead to all prescriptions being sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. When fully implemented, the Electronic Prescription Service will reduce the need for patients to visit their GP to collect a repeat a prescription, saving time and improving convenience.
