Need extra help?

The Priority Services Register (PSR) is free to join. It helps us know who may require extra help, and look after any customers with communication, access, physical or mental health needs.

Here are the services we offer:

  • Visually impaired – We can provide bills and all other printed communications in Braille, large print or as a CD.  You can also change the colours for this website to adapt it to suit your needs.
  • Hearing difficulties – We have type talk facilities available. This is a free service which lets you speak or type the conversation and then converts it into text both online and over the phone.
  • Medical Conditions – If you have a medical condition that requires you to use large amounts of water, you can be added to our register.  We may deliver water to you during a supply interruption. 
  • Password scheme – Register for our password scheme, so you can tell if our staff are genuine if they visit you. Before they enter your property, they must tell you the password first. 
  • Physical or mental health needs – We guarantee to treat any information you share with us sensitively

You can also download a PDF version of the Priority Services form and post it to us at Advanced Care Team, Affinity Water, Tamblin Way, Hatfield, Herts, AL10 9EZ
