Our dedicated practice based Elderly care coordinator, Indra, provides a unique service to Watford Health Centre. Indra works closely with the GPs and the rest of our expanding multidisciplinary team at the surgery and coordinates patients care rapidly to the most appropriate health professional or team. She is often the first point of contact for those that are frail, living alone or housebound and for their carers and provides a much needed link. She has links to community services including district nurses, OT and physio as well as mental health, social care and provides post hospital discharge support. Providing a much needed continuity of care for elderly patients and their carers, Indra helps keep our growing elderly population as independent as possible, supporting them when things get too much, whilst helping with more rapid access to services to meet their needs.
Excellent service (on both occasions). Organised and efficient but still human/people orientated. Environment clean and presentable. Both pleased and thankful. Congrats Watford Health Centre you've done a fab job.February 2021
I was having a problem about my prescription where to send it since I had a broken foot. And the lady who answered my phone call was so helpful she has a soft kind voice, she did her best to help. It is such a great feeling to hear someone is so kind and helpful when you really need it. Phone call made Nov 25 .2020 around 12:30pm. Thank you to the lady .November 2020
The Doctor who did my flu jab was outstanding! Very polite and made me feel relaxed. Thank you to all the staff at the Watford Health Centre for keeping us safe, it is much appreciated by the general public. Thanks!JY October 2020
I had the flu jab on Saturday morning. My opinion is that the system was run brilliantly - well thought out and well organised.September 2020
Great service. Notification that you had ordered a flu injection for me without having to ask for it. On the day, socially distanced waiting area, under cover, with staff directing people to doctor’s consulting rooms. Production line process. In and out, in under 10 minutes. It doesn’t get better than that!September 2020
