MINOR AILOMENTS AND CPCS SERVICES

Please read up about the pharmacy support we can provide you with when we cannot offer you an appt on the day. Please read below:

SEE THE LOCAL PHARMACIST FOR YOUR AILMENTS

We are starting a new scheme whereby patients will be able to see or consult with our local pharmacist, Terrys Pharmacy, down the road, for basic minor ailments.

Terrys Pharmacy is located at 4 Castle Hill Parade, London W13 8JP and this is a link to their website

TERRYS PHARMACY

It will work in the following way:

When the patient calls in for an emergency appointment in the morning, if its something that can be dealt with by the pharmacist, based on a checklist (see list below) then reception will send your details via a quick referral form, with your consent to the Pharmacist, who will then call you and take over your care for that particular ailment. He can even prescribe for you if required.  He will aim to call you on the day.

If in case the situation is such that requires GP input, he will inform us, and we will then get back to the patient for a review.

This will help the surgery provide more access to patients with more complex or long term health issues.

We hope that you will find this service useful.  Please see video below for more info:

EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS

Your local NHS is seeking your views about the best times and locations for GP (doctor) and nurse appointments in the evenings and weekends.

Nationally the NHS has asked local practices to review the times to provide appointments at evenings and weekends. We want to capture information to support decision-making and make sure we are providing times, and locations that meet the needs of local people.

Our short survey will take no more than two minutes and your answers will help us to provide the best possible times and locations for our evening and weekend GP services.

Please complete our survey https://bit.ly/NWL-Evening-Weekends

(GP and nurse appointments are already available in the evening and at the weekend and can be booked by calling your GP practice or 111).

MONKEYPOX AND COVID SCREENING FOR FACE TO FACE APPTS
