Out of hours services this bank holiday

We will be closed this bank holiday.

However, you can still see a GP at one our GP access hubs, or get advice from NHS 111 or visit a pharmacist. 

GPs are assuring residents across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge that the local NHS is ‘open for business’ and ready to safely provide care to people who need it. It is important you do not wait if you need urgent medical help. 

We know that some people are worried that they might be a burden to the NHS, or that they could contract COVID-19 if they seek help for an urgent medical issue at the moment, but services are very safe for patients to access. 

Out of hours GP services are offering a telephone consultation with a GP and you will be booked an appointment if you do need to be seen by a clinician. 

If you have an urgent medical need over the weekend, first visit NHS 111 online for advice. If you cannot access the internet, call 111. 

Bookable appointments are available between 8am and 8pm on Bank Holiday Monday at one of the GP access hubs across the three boroughs. Loxford Polyclinic and South Hornchurch Health Centre are also only seeing patients who book in advance – you will not be seen if you turn up without an appointment. 

For advice and to book an appointment, call NHS 111 (open 24/7) or call the GP Hubs booking hotline on 020 3770 1888 (open from 8am to 8pm). 

Community pharmacies will also be available this bank holiday weekend. Before visiting your local pharmacy, first check the opening hours on the NHS.UK website. When you visit you must comply with the social distancing measures in place to protect yourself and staff. 

If it is a serious or life-threatening emergency, such as if you or a family member have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, call 999 immediately. If you are told to go to hospital, it is important that you go.

In addition, if you are pregnant and are worried about your health or the health of your unborn baby, please contact your midwife or maternity team. 

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 however mild, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 – go to testing to arrange. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. All the latest guidance can be found here.


Please do not come to the surgery unless we have advised you to do so.
If we ask you to attend please wear a face covering.
