We are running this with our Primary Care Network. We have had and still have many clinics planned, all dependant on the delivery of our flu vaccines. So far they have all been at the Harpenden Halls and the next Clinic is Saturday 23rd October, invite only. All at risk patients have been invited now and over 67 year olds.

Patient Notice - We are here for you
To the patients of the Harpenden Health Primary Care Network (The Elms Medical Practice, Davenport House Surgery and The Village Surgery),
We have remained open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, but we are being asked to prioritise delivery of care and services based on clinical needs.
The way you access your GP is therefore a little different- it has changed to ensure you get the best and most appropriate care safely and quickly. To make this possible, we are triaging most appointment requests. You can request an appointment via our email (firstname.lastname@example.org), by phone or in person at reception. Triaging appointments allows us to assess the most appropriate way to provide your care depending on your clinical need, and ensure your care is provided by the most appropriate person in an appropriate timeframe. We are also bringing in a new service called EConsult which allows you to request everything from an appointment to ordering prescriptions to requesting a sick certificate. Extremely quick, full of useful advice and very user friendly. Our appointments vary depending on the needs of the patient which may be by phone or video, or a face-to-face consultation.
Please be aware that when you do visit the surgery, you will be asked to wear a face mask (unless you are exempt) and comply with social distancing regulations. If the reception or waiting room area is busy, you may be asked to wait outside the surgery until it is safe for you to enter.
General practice, nationally, is under intense pressure- supporting patients, communities, hospitals and delivering vaccinations.
Our team are working extremely hard to provide services and care both at the practice and at the vaccination centre - we thank you for your ongoing support and appreciate your patience and respect.
Your general practice is here for you. Help us help you.
Thank you from your Harpenden Health PCN

Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
The Practice premises are modern and purpose built; dating from 1995. Disabled patients can access all the medical services provided directly.
