To Patients & Carers of patients registered with GP Practices in Bishop’s Stortford, Much Hadham, Sawbridgeworth and surrounding areas
East and North Herts Clinical Commissioning Group & NHS England are seeking your views about extending the opening hours of GP practices in Bishop’s Stortford, Much Hadham, Sawbridgeworth & surrounding areas, known as Stort Valley & Villages.
GP practices in this area are currently open between 8am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday, with some practices open for longer hours on one or two weekdays and some Saturday mornings. These are called “extended hours appointments”.
The new proposal is to offer extended hours appointments every weekday evening and at weekends/early mornings depending on local demand by October 2018. These appointments will be offered from a central surgery hub, which is different to the surgery that you are registered with. The service will be run by Stort Valley Healthcare Ltd which is a collaboration of all GPs in the area.
Everyone registered with a GP practice in the area is asked to give their opinion on these proposals.
