When We Are Closed

out_of_hoursWhen the surgery is closed an emergency service is provided by Herts Urgent Care - HUC. 

The doctor who calls will not be your own doctor.  

The service operates overnight on weekdays from 6pm-8am.  At the weekend from 6pm friday - 8am monday and over bank holidays.  Please telephone and give your details to the call handler who will log your call and ask a doctor or nurse to call you back.  You will either be given telephone advice or an invitation to attend the out of hours centre to see a doctor face to face or if neccessary a doctor will call to your home.  

Please do not just turn up without first telephoning.

Accident & Emergency

The nearest A&E Department is at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.  If you feel your condition is life threatening please go directly there.   In most cases we ask that you speak to a GP in the first instance either at your practice or via the 111 service as most conditions can be dealt with by a general practitioner.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
