Emergency Care Outside Surgery Hours


During surgery hours : 020 8312 6090/1

If you have an urgent medical problem which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please hang up and dial 1-1-1.  You will be assessed, given advice and directed to the local service that can help you best.

NHS 111 is free to call from both landlines and mobiles. 
 

Serious accident or medical emergency

If you have an accident or medical emergency, you should call 999 and ask for an ambulance. Ambulance staff provide emergency care on location and, if necessary, take people to the hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) department (also called the "Casualty" department). 

  • A&E is for injuries and serious problems requiring immediate treatment. Anyone who has an accident or emergency should go there. Otherwise, please try another source of help.
  • A&E departments are always very busy, so be prepared to wait for treatment.

For further information, please see the NHS Choices website for details on the Ambulance Service and What is an emergency.
