Out Of Hours Service
The main Church Street Partnership switchboard is open from 8am until 5pm. For urgent advice from your GP between 5pm and 6.30pm call 01279 657636 and follow the recorded message instructions.
If you need medical advice between 6.30pm and 8am weekdays, at weekends or bank holidays you should dial 111. You will connect to the NHS 111 service and your problem will be assessed by the call handler. You may be given self-help advice or advised to speak to a pharmacist.
For more serious conditions a GP from Herts Urgent Care (HUC) will call you back and discuss the problem further. If you need to be seen before your own surgery reopens you will be offered an appointment with a GP or a home visit (at the discretion of the GP).
HUC use Haymeads Health Centre during the weekends and weekday evenings. It is not a walk-in service: you must call 111 first.
Please note that the 111 service operates 24 hours a day and can provide general medical advice. If you are unsure if you need to see a GP, consider calling 111 first.
