When We Are Closed
All our patients are covered by the out of hours service are commissioned by NHS Hertfordshire and provided by Herts Urgent Care. A duty Doctor is always available for emergencies when the surgery is closed.
After 6.30pm on weekdays and at weekends, emergency calls are covered by a deputising service operating from the Lister Hospital; often with local doctors working, including the doctors from the practice.
Phone 0844 4994777 and press 1 to be connected directly to the out of hours service, or you can dial directly to Herts Urgent Care on 03000 333 333.
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct (0845 4647) or NHS111 (dial 111) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
