When We Are Closed
When 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.
