Duty doctor service (during opening hours)
To make it easier for you to get the right help when you need it urgently, we are offering a duty doctor service at the practice. The service is available Monday to Friday (excluding weekends and bank holidays) between the hours of 08:00 and 18:30.
If you need urgent medical advice for you or someone you care for, please call the practice on 020 7275 0077. Please explain to the reception that you have an urgent problem and they will arrange for the duty doctor to call you back within 2 hours.
The doctor may:
- Give you advice straight away over the phone
- Arrange for you to come into the practice to see a doctor or nurse or other member of staff
- Arrange for a home visit if you are not well enough to come to the surgery and the doctor thinks you need to be seen
- Direct you towards other services which can help
This service offers you quick access to your GP practice, where we have your full medical records. We recommend this service instead of going to A&E.
