Urgent Care Centre: If needing support outside our opening hours

Patients who may have attended the Urgent Care Centre overnight have a range of options that need not include visiting their nearest A&E department.

There are around 100 bookable appointments in total available overnight across NHS facilities at Hemel Hempstead, Watford, St Albans, Borehamwood and Potters Bar.

For residents in or near Hemel Hempstead, they can still be seen at Hemel Hempstead Hospital, via the 111 service.

There is also the possibility of a GP home visit for patients. In addition, an urgent GP appointment can be made for the following day. All of these options can be arranged via the 111 service. The 111 service also has information on late night and 24hr pharmacies.

Patients who do not require emergency treatment are strongly encouraged to use the 111 service in preference to an A&E where they may find themselves waiting behind other patients whose needs are greater. Anyone in severe pain or who becomes acutely unwell should always call 999.
