There are pre-bookable telephone appointments available with a doctor both before surgery starts and after. These appointments are available to book online or via the reception team. Telephone appointments are useful for those patients who do not require a face-to-face consultation but would benefit from a GP's medical advice or a discussion concerning test results, for example.

Both sites are closed Saturdays, Sundays and all bank holidays.

Buckden surgery is closed Thursday afternoons from 2.00pm though emergency appointments can still be accessed via the usual surgery number. The dispensary closes at 1.00pm on Thursday afternoons.

Little Paxton surgery is closed Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 12.45pm.

Please note on a Thursday afternoon our phones switch over at 1.00pm to the emergency on-call doctor so that we can allow time for our doctors to engage with Clinical Governance activities and administration. The surgery building is still open until 2.00pm.

Weekends & Night Cover

Hertfordshire Urgent Care (HUC) is responsible for the on-call service. If you need a doctor outside normal surgery hours - from 6.00pm - 8.00am on weekdays and all weekend and bank holidays – telephone our usual switchboard number on 01480 810216. Options will be presented and your call will be received and forwarded to the surgery doctor on-call or you may be be advised to redial 111 services for advice.

Emergencies

If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or profuse bleeding call an ambulance (tel: 999) before calling the surgery.
