Changes to GP ‘walk in’ services during the weekends and public holidays

From next week, (1st October 2019), it will no longer be possible to use the ‘walk in service’ at Evergreen Primary Care Centre, Eagle House Surgery and Carlton House Surgery to get a GP appointment during the weekends and public holidays.

The evening and weekend GP service will continue to operate, but access to the service will be via appointment only.

You can get an appointment during the evenings, weekends and public holidays by calling NHS 111 who will be able to book an appointment for you, if necessary.

This change has been implemented in line with other neighbouring boroughs, to ensure that everyone in North Central London has equal access to out of hours GP services. This change will also mean that usage of the out of hours appointments will be monitored, to ensure that individuals use the appointments appropriately. To date, some people using the service would be better served by seeing their own GP and benefiting from seeing a doctor that knows them. Examples include, medication reviews, repeat prescriptions and fitness to work certificates.

With winter getting closer, remember there are things you can do to protect yourself and those around you. Start keeping an eye out for information about flu jabs and if you are eligible for a free flu jab, make sure you get yours booked in.
