Detailed information about the registration
In line with government guidance we have made changes to the way that we look after patients because of the coronavirus outbreak.
This is so we can keep our patients and staff safe and healthy and make best use of our resources.
The changes are in keeping with the government’s approach to protecting people against coronavirus by reducing contact to essential circumstances.
The main change is that we are reducing the need for patients to come into the practice by moving to telephone and video consultations where we can. We are also making sure that you can get prescriptions without coming in.
Please call to speak to a doctor between 0830Hrs to 1100Hrs and 1430Hrs to 1630Hrs for advice on the same day.
PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS & MEDICAL CERTIFICATES
Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus outbreak all prescription requests will be dealt with electronically, all medical certificates will be sent electronically through mobile telephones and all GP appointments – both future and pre-booked will need to be cancelled until further notice.
West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust is only accepting urgent referrals
