When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed a recorded message explains how to get medical advice out-of-hours. Consultations between 18:30 and 08:00 weeknights and all day on Saturday and Sunday are made by doctors from Herts Urgent Care (HUC). If they decide you need to see a doctor for medical advice you will be expected to attend an out-of-hours centre for your consultation.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
