Extended Access

People living in Waltham Forest are now able to make an appointment to see a GP in the evenings and at weekends. Click here for information.

When We Are Closed

When the surgery is closed, it is always possible to contact one of the partners, assistants or relief doctor by telephoning 020 223 9840.

Emergency Out-of-Hours Service

At present Waltham Forest Doctors-on-call provide cover after surgery hours, weekends and bank holidays. If you require urgent medical attention at these times, telephone on 020 8223 9840 and a tape-recorded message will give you the number to call.  

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.
