Welcome to The Village Surgery
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need about both of our practices (located at Amenbury Lane in Harpenden and Marford Road in Wheathampsted).
As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

There are currently measles outbreaks in our area. Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and sometimes lead to serious complications. Please call us to check your child/teenager has had the 2 injections they require for complete vaccination. We can provide any missing vaccinations.
For more info, and for what to look out for, see leaflet and link below:
There is a national shortage of Epipens for young people. If you are normally prescribed an Epipen, please see advice below from the NHS. We would also advice that, if you received a device that you are not familiar with, that you ask the pharmacist for a demonstration of how to use it.
To help us ensure we are keeping your information safe, we will now need your name, DOB and address before you can collect any document or prescription from the surgery.
Please also make sure we have your up-to-date contact details
Local data sharing scheme " My Care Record"
My Care Record allows health and care professionals working directly with you to access your medical and social care information. By making your information available across the health and care system, your GP practice, hospital team or community nurse will be able to see the most up-to-date, accurate information about you. For more information on this, including information on how to opt out, please see tab below Summary Care Record/My Care Record.
Food banks and Hygiene bank
We are now pleased to be collecting donations to pass onto local food banks. We would be grateful for any non-perishable food donations you can make. Large Foodbank collection baskets are in both reception areas.
Our Wheathampstead surgery is now also a collection point for The Hygiene bank. This aims to help those in hygiene poverty - donations of shower products, deodorant, toothbrushes and pastes, sanitary products, laundry products etc would all be welcomed. For Harpenden collection points, please see this link: https://www.thehygienebank.com/hertfordshire
