The NHS in London is very busy as coronavirus infection rates continue to be high, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.
Most consultations are over the phone and via video. This is for everyone's safety.
The receptionist will ask you to provide a brief description of the issue to help the doctor who will be calling you back. Your name will be added to the Triage list.
Please note phone lines are very busy so please bear with us.
We will assess your situation and invite you into the practice if needed. We can arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care but please don't visit without an appointment. Appointments will be held in the best way to keep you safe from Covid.
You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.
Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.
Please help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe by following the latest rules.
Please do not contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine. The NHS is prioritising vaccinating people who experts have agreed will benefit the most. We will let you know when it is your turn. Please see here for advice.

Minor Ailment Scheme
Every year, millions of patients visit their GP with minor health problems that the local pharmacist could resolve. Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time: just walk in.
All pharmacists can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help to clear up the problem. So if you have a common health problem, a trip to a participating pharmacy is an option.
The standard prescription charge applies to the Scheme. If you're exempt from paying prescription charges, for
Waltham Forest Pharmacies participating in the Minor Ailment Scheme.

EXTENDED HOURS SERVICE
Due to a re-structuring of services at national level, many local GP Surgeries are no longer able to provide 'Extended Hours' clinics in their Practices.
Instead, our group of Practices (Walthamstow West Network) have teamed together to provide an alternative 'Extended Hours' service - provided by a GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Nurse and Health Care Assistant from a central 'Hub Surgery' every weekday evenings between 6.30 and 10.00 PM
These clinics are in ADDITION to the existing out of hours GP surgeries that are held on the weekday evenings and weekends.
Please note, that appointments for the NEW EXTENDED HOURS CLINICS must be pre-booked via the Practice reception desk on 020 8520 2625.
