What to do when we are closed

When the surgery is closed it is important that you use the correct available alternative depending on the urgency of the problem.

Accident & Emergency  - Hillingdon Hospital

Please remember you must call 999 or go immediately to Accident & Emergency where life is at risk. However, typically 9/10 people do not need to attend A&E and other services are more appropriate alternatives.

Call NHS 111

If you are not sure exactly which service is appropriate please call the NHS 111 service. This service is available to all our registered patients. They are aware of services and can direct you to the most appropriate one. Calls are free from landlines or mobiles.

Ask your pharmacy

Pharmacists are highly trained professionals who can advise you on a wide range of common ailments. Also, minor ailments passport holders are also eligible for over the counter treatment on prescription (free for children and those exempt from charges) without the need to wait for GP appointment. Next time ask at reception for more details.
