On the first Tuesday of the month all sites are closed at 1pm for CCG organised education for the Doctors and the Nurses across Barking & Dagenham.(only exception to this is when it follows a bank holiday and the surgery will then close at 1pm on the second Tuesday of the month).
If you need to see a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed please phone NHS 111. This service allows patients to access NHS healthcare when their condition is less urgent than a 999 call. Patients will receive medical advice fast if they do not have a case which is a 999 EMERGENCY. The 111 service is online all day all year.
GP Health Hubs are available for our patients when our appointments are full. Patients can see a GP who will have access to the patient records (after getting consent from the patients). Appointments in these Health Hubs can be provided from 18:30 up to 22:00. The Health Hubs are open all day on the weekends and on Bank Holidays. These GP Health Hubs are located in Barking Hospital, Broad Street, Newbury Park Health Centre and Fullwell Cross
Please call the Health Hub Central Number after 14:00 on: 0203 770 1888

A Minor Ailments Clinic is available at local pharmacies to cater for those with colds, diarrhoea, backache, temperature and other symptoms (please check with pharmacy).
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.
