Weekend access and 111

       During the winter months, Covid infections have risen sharply in London and this has led to increased demand for hospital care.
  • Please be aware the 111 service is currently under extreme pressure in our area. GP surgeries are open from 08:00 to 18:30 (core hours), except on weekends and bank holidays.
  • Please call 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk  when the GP surgeries are closed
  • If you have a medical emergency, please dial 999 as usual

Urgent and routine problems

The NHS is very busy responding to the coronavirus pandemic and, at certain times, your GP practice may need to prioritise patients with the most urgent health needs. 

If you have a health issue that isn’t urgent, advice is available on the NHS website www.nhs.uk or NHS app or you can speak to your local pharmacist. You can also use e-consult which is available through our practice website . 

Please continue to attend tests, vaccinations and screening when invited.  

www.111.nhs.uk is also available 24/7 for urgent health advice or by calling 111, and 999 is for emergencies.”   ‘
