We are currently open.
Out of hours service
Between 18:00 and 08:00, Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on Bank Holidays your call will be redirected to the NHS 111 service.
When we are closed
If you require a doctor outside of surgery hours (18:00 – 08:00 Monday to Friday and 18:00 on a Friday to 08:00 on a Monday, and bank holidays) please telephone 111.
NHS 111 is the NHS non-emergency number which is fast, easy and free.
By calling 111, you will get to speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.
They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999.
We are not routinely open on a Saturday. If you require “urgent” medical attention over the weekend, please call one of the two numbers above. It is essential that you ensure you have sufficient medication to last over the weekend as the out-of- hours service will not be able to provide repeat prescriptions.
Only call 999 in an emergency – Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute as an emergency.
Our reception team will be pleased to order you a taxi following a visit to the practice.
Transport To Your Outpatient Appointment
You may book an ambulance to take you to your first hospital appointment, through reception, if your doctor agrees.
There is no automatic right to have ambulance transport.
We have been asked by Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Ambulance and Paramedic Service to be quite strict about authorising transport.
Please make the booking at least a week in advance, so that the ambulance service can plan ahead.
