Important information for patients who use Spring House but are not registered there
Spring House Medical Centre is one of only two GP surgeries in Hertfordshire which treats patients who are not registered with that practice.
However, now that the New QEII Hospital is open just across the road from Spring House, adults and children of all ages with minor injuries or illnesses have 24 hour access to health services at the Urgent Care Centre, which is located within the hospital.
That is why, from 1 July 2015, Spring House will only treat patients registered there. Patients who are registered with practices elsewhere can visit their own GP or access health services at the hospital’s Urgent Care Centre.
With X-ray facilities and experienced emergency nurses on hand, the new Urgent Care Centre offers an excellent service. There is a drop-off point right outside the door and parking nearby.
The Urgent Care Centre is just one of the new facilities available for local people at the New QEII Hospital. For more information, go to www.newqeii.info
Anyone who urgently needs health advice and isn’t sure whether the Urgent Care Centre can help can call NHS 111, free from any phone.
If you are registered as a patient at Spring House, there will be no change to your services.
