For all medical emergencies call the surgery’s emergency telephone number 01727 836977.

From 8am to 6:30pm, Monday to Friday this number will be answered by one of the reception staff and dealt with as appropriate.

‘Out of hours’ when the surgery is closed, calls to the emergency number are forwarded automatically to HUC.

Out of hours

Anyone who lives in, or is visiting, Hertfordshire, can call 111 when they need medical help fast, but its not a 999 emergency, life threatening situation.

Callers are assessed, given advice and directed straight away to the local service that can help them best. That could be an out of hours GP (Herts Urgent Care), a minor injuries unit, community nurse, late night opening pharmacist, an urgent care centre or A&E.

Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.
