We are here for you when you need us – how to access services
If you need the help of a GP, practice nurse or other health professional that works in our surgery, we are here for you.
GP practices are busier than they have ever been and we want you to know how to get the help you need from us.
As you will know, we have been open throughout the pandemic, offering you telephone appointments, with face to face consultations available for those who need them. We have continued to help many thousands of patients each week, alongside planning and delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
There are some things that patients can do to help make sure we can see everyone who needs us, as quickly as possible. Please continue to contact us by phone as this helps us to manage people entering our practice building; it is much better if you don’t come to the practice unless you have an appointment. We need to keep social distancing in our practice building to keep everyone safe, we also ask that you always wear a mask while in the surgery. Please remember that appointments are a set amount of time, so it is only safe to discuss one or two health issues. If you have more to discuss, please mention this when you speak to reception staff.
Our busiest times of the day on the phones are between 8am and 10am so if you can, we would suggest that you call outside of this time.
Reception is open Monday-Friday
Appointment times will vary by Doctor but in general are available between:
Morning 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Afternoon 2 pm to 4:30 pm
Evening 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
If you feel it is an urgent medical problem, please alert reception staff of this when you are booking the appointment.
Anyone who is infectious should inform Reception and you will be shown to a side room where you can wait for your appointment.
Extended Access appts at Hertsmere Practices
As part of extended access, telephone appts are also available with other Hertsmere Practices during Weekday evenings and at the weekend. Please ask reception for more details or see below:
