Local GP practices continue to work hard to provide healthcare advice and support to local patients.

GPs are working mainly over the telephone or via video consultations instead of face-to-face at the moment, to help patients and staff stay safe.

GPs can still see patients face-to-face if there is a medical reason to do so, but this will be determined by telephone triage or video consultation first.

The usual ‘Extended Access’ appointments will also be available, contact your GP surgery for advice or visit: www.hertsvalleysccg.nhs.uk.

The majority of pharmacies will open between 2pm and 5pm on the bank holiday.

Find more details about pharmacy services on the NHS website.
