Chorleywood Health Centre has remained open and operating throughout the Covid 19 Pandemic. Like the rest of the country we have had to change the way that we provide our services in order to keep patients and staff safe and secure and to reduce the footfall within the practice.
All patients continue to be able to access face to face appointments, telephone appointments or video consultations.
In addition patients can use the online consultation forms to raise a query with their GP or Nurse, ask a question of the medical secretary or request an appointment and clinical advice.
You can access an appointment or communicate with us in the following ways:
- Telephone: 01923 287100 – Please call after 10am for non urgent queries
- Online – By using NHS APP or one of the other online services
- Online Consultation – You can complete a form and send this to the practice. You will be responded to within 2 working days.
In order to assist in preventing the spread of Coronavirus, we ask all visitors to please wear a face covering when visiting the practice where possible and maintain social distancing. Please do not attend the surgery if you have symptoms of Covid 19 or if anyone in your household is self isolating.
The Practice plays a key role in maintaining the underlying health of our population during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is vital that we continue to provide care to all patients if we have the capacity and ensure that those at greatest need are prioritised.

This has been a very challenging time for all of us and we are so proud of our team here who have continued to work through every day of this pandemic. We would like to ask you all to respect this and hold onto this thought. Some practices have had to close, some have had to centralise some of their services, but we have done everything in our power to continue to run and deliver a local service by staff that you know. Whilst we appreciate the frustration and worry that this horrible situation brings (to us all) please remember, our staff are doing their best for you and unpleasant or abusive behaviour towards them will not be tolerated.
We hope that you continue to keep safe and well during these difficult circumstances and want to reassure you that the Practice team are here to support you the best we can. Please continue to contact us if something feels important to you or is worrying you.
