Out of Hours
OUT OF HOURS
Outside of surgery opening times our answering machine will tell you the number to contact.
After 6:30pm weekdays, all weekends and bank holidays, calls are taken by the Herts Out-Of-Hours Service (HOOHS)
This is only for emergencies that cannot wait until the surgery reopens. It runs an appointment system and is not a walk-in service. It is staffed by a co-operative of local GP's and operates from a base at Hertford County Hospital. You will be asked to attend the base unless telephone advice is sufficient. Priority is given to urgent problems.
