Extended Hours

As part of North Uttlesford Primary Care Network we offer GP and nurses appointments one Saturday a month. These are pre bookable appointments only, not urgent on the day.


When We Are Closed

Outside 08:00 to 18:30, Monday to Friday, an emergency doctor service, operated by Herts Urgent Care (HUC), is in place for the West Essex area.  You can access this service by dialling 111.

The emergency doctor will discuss your problem over the phone, and may ask you to come in to the clinic at Dunmow or may visit you at home.

The emergency doctor will send you to hospital if they feel it is necessary, and can call ahead to expedite the process on your arrival. 

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.


Please note that Thaxted Surgery will be closed for essential clinical and staff training, between the hours of 13:30 - 17:30 on the following dates detailed below:
