Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:

Online – via the link at the top of this page. This is our preferred method. 

On the NHS App

In person - drop your repeat form off in the prescription box by reception.

At your local pharmacy

The following pharmacies will collect your repeat forms:

  • Keans Pharmacy in Welham Green
  • Jhoots Pharmacy in Brookmans Park
  • Boots Pharmacy in Potters Bar

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed unless your items are out of authorisation or any alterations requested.  If so these will take 72 hours to process, and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

We process our prescriptions using the NHS Electronic Prescription Service and no longer print your prescriptions. This is a safer, more accurate and more secure method. 


Repeat Prescription Reviews

A review of your repeat medication will be necessary at intervals. We have tried to streamline the repeats process so that we do not rely on computer generated reminders.

How it Works

When your prescription is due for review please put in your prescription as normal. A doctor will look at your records and will then decide how best to carry out the review.

You will receive a  text message which may suggest, for example:

  • you arrange to have a blood test
  • you see a GP
  • you see a practice nurse
  • you arrange a telephone appointment

This should ensure that you are only called for review when necessary and that all the blood tests necessary are carried out before, not after, the appointment.

We take medication safety seriously, so if you don't have your review in the time specified you may not receive your prescription.
