As we approach winter, we are seeing an increasing number of patients with respiratory infections, as well as high rates of COVID19 infections locally.

We would like to remind patients that if you have a cough, fever, loss of taste or smell, or any flu-like symptoms, it is vital that you have a PCR test immediately.

Lateral flow tests are NOT meant to be used if you have any symptoms of COVID19. This also applies to children of any age.

In order to keep our staff and patients safe, if you or your child requires an appointment, and have had any of the above symptoms, we CANNOT see you in person at the surgery without a NEGATIVE PCR test first.

Negative lateral flow tests do NOT count. If you do not have a negative PCR test, you will be offered a telephone appointment if required, and if we feel that you need to be examined by doctor, we will have to refer you to our Assessment Hub at Hemel Hempstead Hospital.

We would like to thank our patients for their ongoing cooperation and understanding, which is crucial in order to allow the surgery to continue to operate as normal over the next few months.

Thank you for your understanding!
