When We Are Closed
When St. George's Medical Centre is closed please phone 111 for help.
How does it work?
The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.
Calls to 111 are recorded. All calls and the records created are maintained securely, and will only be shared with others directly involved with your care.
In a LIFE THREATENING emergency call 999 for an ambulance or go to the accident and emergency department of your nearest hospital immediately.

Enhanced Service Appointments
Enhanced Service appointments are additional appointments held at 'hub' practices (e.g. Greenfield Medical Centre). These are at 18:30 to 20:00 weekdays, and between 08:00 and 20:00 on weekends and bank holidays.
Consultations with a doctor/nurse can be over the telephone or face-to-face. During the consultation the clinician will (with your permission) be able to access your medical records.
To book please call 020 8208 6901, or ask one of our receptionists what appointments are available.
