When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed we use a local GP co-operative service called HARMONI to provide medical assistance. This is for true emergencies only which can not wait until the surgery opens next. Please respect this and think before you ring.
The urgent medical problems are dealt with
- Telephone Advice(calls may be recorded for medico-legal purposes)
- An appointment to see a doctor at the primary care centre,
- A home visit
Please call the surgery on 020-3313-7806 and a pre-recorded message will give you instructions on how to contact an emergency doctor. (Harmoni is an agency and the practice has a payable contract)
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS Direct (0845 4647) to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
