When We Are Closed - Out of Hours
NHS 111 (non-emergency number)
If you phone the surgery outside of normal opening hours you will be asked to hang up and dial 111. Calls are taken by trained staff that will make referrals as needed to the out-of-hours provider or direct you to the most appropriate service.
NHS 111 service has replaced NHS direct and is for people:
Who don’t know who to call for medical help or who don't have a GP
Who need health information or reassurance about what they should do next
Who think they need A&E or another NHS urgent care service, but it is not a life-threatening 999 emergency
We use an out-of-hours (OOH) provider called Care UK to provide urgent medical care to all of our patients. They can organise an appointment for you at their primary care centre or visit you at home if you are housebound and urgent care is needed. They are unable to deal with routine requests such as prescriptions or booking surgery appointments.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
Walk In Centres
Our local Walk In Centre is Pinn Medical Centre, located at 37 Love Lane, Pinner, Middlesex, HA5 3EE and is open daily from 8AM - 8PM.
The Alexander Clinic is no longer a Walk In Centre and will redirect you to alternative services.
Extended Hours Hubs
There are 3 hubs spread across the borough viz Eastcote Health Centre (North); Uxbridge Health Centre (Central) and HESA centre (South) whereby practices can book their patients but there is limited availability. The service is open Monday to Friday from 6:30PM-8PM and 8AM-8PM on weekends (between 3 hub sites).
