GP extended access service (GP hubs)                                                        

GP and nurse appointments are available to all Enfield patients over the Christmas and New Year period at your local practice or at one of Enfield’s four GP access hubs.

You can request an appointment with a local GP or nurse at any one of the hubs by either:

contacting your own GP practice directly during core opening hours (8am-6.30pm),

calling 111 weekday evenings, weekends and bank holidays (Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day) when your GP practice is closed


Your local pharmacist can give you friendly expert advice about over-the-counter medicines that can help with lots of common conditions without the need for an appointment. There are pharmacies open in Enfield throughout the festive period. Please see the table below for information about opening times. You can also download this information.
