Non-urgent advice: Enhanced Access & Out of Hours

Out of Hours

Outside normal surgery hours, if you urgently need to see a doctor please telephone 111.

After 6.30pm on weekdays, on all weekends and bank holidays, calls will be taken by Herts Urgent Care on telephone number 111.

Herts Urgent Care is staffed by GPs from the local area and works from a centre at Hertford County Hospital.

If you need emergency medical attention you will normally be asked to attend the centre although there are facilities to visit you at home.

Please do not go to Herts Urgent Care without phoning first because the service is by appointment only.

Enhanced Access – Evening and Saturday Appointments

From 1st October 2022, the previous Extended Access service has altered in line with national changes to this service.

The newly named ‘Enhanced Access’ is continuing to be run by the local GP Federation, Generating Healthcare, and is available for patients registered at the following surgeries:

This service continues to offer routine appointments Monday to Friday from 18:30-20:30 and Saturday from 09:00-17:00 with a GP, nurse, or other healthcare professional. Hanscombe House surgery in Hertford continues to remain the host practice for this service.

For more information on Enhanced Access, or to book (or cancel) an appointment, please contact your practice during normal opening hours.

If you need to speak to the Enhanced Access team Monday to Thursday, during 18:30-20:30, or Saturday during 09:00-17:00, please call 01992 938370.
