Outside normal hours if you ring the surgery you will be advised to ring the Out-of-Hours service. This is now covered by the '111' service. To call dial: 111.
Call 999 in an emergency, for example chest pains with shortness of breath or evidence of a stroke.
The QE2 now has a minor injuries unit rather than a full A&E. If you need to attend an A&E and think it is serious enough that you may need admission to hospital we would advise you to go direct to The Lister Hospital A&E in Stevenage.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
