Repeat prescribing

Repeat prescriptions are computerised and a repeat request form is attached to each script. Please detach this and keep it safe until you need another supply.

Two working days' notice is required for any repeat prescription, whether electronic or if collected from the Surgery.

Ordering and collecting repeat prescriptions

Please indicate on your repeat request where you wish to collect your prescription from.

Ordering your prescription

Directly from The Medical Centre

Drop your repeat form at Reception (allow 2 working days).


Prescriptions can be ordered online through Systemonline – you will require a login and password for this service whether you are collecting your prescription from the Surgery or if you wish your prescription to go electronically to your nominated pharmacy (ASDA, Jhoots, Boots, Tesco).

By post

Post your repeat form to us:

University of Hertfordshire Medical Centre
College Lane
Herts AL10 9AB

You may use the internal mail if you are able (don't forget to include an SAE if you want it returned by post).

At your local pharmacy


Repeat prescription reviews

A review of your repeat medication will be necessary at intervals. Please keep an eye on how many valid repeats you have and make a routine appointment for a review.

The following messages may appear on your repeat slip:

  • "Please Arrange Review" means there remains only one valid repeat on your prescription. Please arrange a medication review. If you do not do so the following message will appear:
  • "No Further Issues Allowed" at which point we reserve the right not to issue further prescriptions unless a review has taken place.
