Respiratory service (West Hertfordshire)

Our West Hertfordshire respiratory service accept referrals from GPs, hospital consultants and community healthcare professionals.

Once patients are known to us they can self-refer back to the service during exacerbations or when they require advice and support.

Patients being referred must be living, or registered with a GP, in West Hertfordshire (Dacorum, Hertsmere, St Albans and Harpenden and Watford and Three Rivers localities).

Patients can be referred to the West Hertfordshire community respiratory service using Choose and Book or by completing and submitting a referral form via email: westherts.resp@nhs.net or fax: 0300 008 3133.
