City and Hackney patients who need to see a GP or practice nurse can also book appointments at weekday evenings, weekends and bank holidays this winter.
In addition to any evening and weekend appointments that your usual practices puts on (check these details with your practice), any patient registered with a City and Hackney GP can ask to be seen at the following practices over the holiday period:
You can book these appointments via your own GP practice. NHS 111 can also arrange an appointment for you, if appropriate, when your practice is closed.
If you need medical help when your GP practice is closed, you can call NHS 111. GPs, nurses and pharmacists can provide assessments, advice and treatment or prescribe medicines over the phone. They can also book an appointment with the most appropriate NHS service.
Dr Mark Rickets, GP and NHS City and Hackney CCG chair: “Having extra appointments services later in the evening, and at weekends and bank holidays, makes it easier for people to be seen more quickly and at a time that better suits them - this even includes being able to see a GP on Christmas day.”
