Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face to face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Non-urgent medical queries and administrative queries can be submitted via econsult on our homepage. We will respond to any queries by the end of the next working day. You must be registered with the Health Centre to use this service. It is an effective way to resolve a wide range of issues.
The Health Centre is open and available for routine health queries.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, initial routine appointments will be conducted via the telephone. Routine telephone appointments can be booked online using SystmOnline, NHS App or by calling 020 7584 6301.
If appropriate the clinician will arrange a face to face appointment for a future date and time, or may offer a video consultation via your mobile phone. Please read information below on attending face to face appointments.
Duty Doctor Telephone Clinics
Monday to Friday
Morning 08.30 – 10.30
Afternoon 14.00 – 16.00
These clinics are intended for patients with more urgent medical problems that need to be dealt with before the next available routine telephone appointment. Please call reception before the end of the clinic time and tell the receptionist that you wish to speak to the duty doctor. The reception team may ask you a few questions to signpost you to the most appropriate clinic.
Urgent Medical Problems
If you feel your medical problem is so urgent that it cannot wait until the next Duty Doctor’s clinic, please notify reception.
If you think you may have Covid-19, please do not come into the Health Centre. Those with suspected Covid-19 or who live with someone with symptoms or those have been told to self-isolate by a test and trace service should call NHS 111 or visit their website.
Attending a face to face appointment
