Consultations with our clinicians are available Monday – Friday with extended surgery hours being available on some weekday evening/weekends every week.

Appointments usually are 10 minutes long and can be pre-booked, up to four weeks in advance.

All consultations are by appointment. Please call in or telephone reception to book.

Face to face appointments and telephone consultations continue to be available during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Medically urgent appointments are available daily if you feel you have a condition which cannot wait for a routine consultation. Please ring at 8:00 am for a morning urgent appointment or ring at 2:00pm for an afternoon urgent appointment. 

Watford Extended Access (WEA)

The Elms Surgery is a part of  Watford Extended Access. We are now able to offer some evening and weekend appointments to our registered patients.  If you require an appointment during extended hours, please book by calling the surgery.  You may be offered appointments in other surgeries which are part of the alliance.  

As part of extended access, we sometimes are able to offer smear and phlebotomy weekend appointments.  Please ask when calling. 

Telephone Advice

A receptionist will then book a telephone consultation for you.

Please be aware that Doctors call patients after morning surgery and a definite time cannot be given for phone consultations.
