Welcome to Orford Lodge Surgery
The practice is a long established partnership of five doctors offering a full range of primary care medical services at a newly refurbished and extended surgery in central Hitchin. We also have a salaried GP working as part of the team.
The practice area includes all of Hitchin and the villages of Charlton, Gosmore, Holwell, Ickleford, Langley, Offley, Pirton, Preston, St. Ippollyts, and the Wymondleys. Each patient has a doctor who is accountable for their care, which is the same doctor they are registered with.
The partners work closely with a full primary health care team of allied professionals including nurses and health visitors. This practice is part of the East and North Herts Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Information about how the CCG uses and shares information about you can be found here: http://www.enhertsccg.nhs.uk/how-we-use-information-about-you-fair-processing-notice.
