Test Results You may telephone the surgery for test results Monday to Friday after 11 o'clock.
Cancelling your Appointment If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel your appointment.
By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.
The out of area registration scheme launched by the government is voluntary and this practice has chosen not to participate at this time. This decision will be reviewed periodically. This means we are not able to register patients living outside our catchment area, regardless of whether they have been registered with us in the past.
We are now able to offer a select number of appointments outside of these hours within our premises in collaboration with other local practices. Please ask for available evening and weekend appointments.
Evening and weekend appointments
You can now see a GP or another healthcare professional on weekday evenings and weekends. To book an appointment, please call the surgery. To find out more about the service, including the treatment centres where you may be seen, please go to:
If you have booked an evening or weekend appointment in West Essex via your GP surgery and need to cancel or change it, please ring NHS111 and select option 3.
Our team of GP's have sessions every week day in the morning and afternoon up to 18.00pm.
The doctors have telephone appointment slots at the end of morning and afternoon session and carry out home visits when necessary.
Practice Nurse Lorraine
Health Care Assistant Karin Barford has sessions most days, as required.
NHS 111 Service
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Alternatively patients can go to a walk in centre at Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow or Whipps Cross Hospital, London E11.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
