Dr Holt has been my survival,he is so patient and calming ,and understand s l need to know all abt my illness .He gives you time ,is reassuring and competent .He understands that you can be frightened but that you have looked up your symptoms on the net !!and smiles ,Thankyou sir Thankyou.

I always manage to get an appointment if needed. Last week I called in for the emergency surgery. I saw two doctors who didn't rush and were really thorough even though it was the end of their day. Staff are helpful and compassionate. This has been my doctors for 47 years and I'm so grateful I can rely on such high standards of care

Portmill Surgery

114 Queen St, Hitchin SG4 9TH, UK – 01462 434246

I had to change a surgery, because doctors in my previous surgery were just ignoring my problems. Portmill surgery dealt very well with my son’s allergy and several problems me and my husband had. I would definitely recommend this surgery. I agree it is a bit of a wait on the telephone line, but you can now book an appointment online, which is very helpful.

Despite some rather negative reviews below, I have had nothing but positive experiences at the surgery. Friendly staff and the doctors really do care about their patients.

Pinehill Hospital

Benslow Ln, Hitchin SG4 9QZ, UK – 01462 422822

Had my operation here as a NHS patient. The staff were so lovely and caring and nothing was to much for them. Food was lovely and fresh. The room was spacious with ensuite. I would definitely recommend pine hill.

Excellent facilities clean and modern but in a old type building that is not as big as other nearby hospitals and has smaller patient numbers so a individual doesn’t feel one of many as sometimes is the case in larger hospitals.The staff are caring compassionate and knowledgeable in the important parts too. The staff and hospital alike are welcoming and the room was very nice with a en suite bathroom that had everything needed in the circumstances. This hospital was the first time I considered that the nhs is not the best for Britain if we could ensure insurance policies for all .Breaking down large departments into smaller units like pinehill creates a exceptional level of care and up to date facilities outshine larger nhs hospitals 100 times over. Staff have more time for individual needs of patients too! I compare this experience to a similar treatment at a nearby nhs hospital and other trips for various reasons which would be less stressful in a hospital like pinehill. Thanks to ALL of the staff for their excellent care and commitment and reception staff and cleaners included as all vital to the team as important as the skilled anaesthetists and surgeons and attentive ,patient ,caring nurses that were all a credit to the health system private or government irrelevant
