The NHS is open for business
Posted on 23 Sep 2020
The NHS is still here for you and NHS premises are safe. If you are called for an appointment, please make sure you attend. We have put in place rigorous infection control measures to keep patients and staff safe.
Please contact your GP if you need medical advice. You may be offered a telephone, video or online consultation in the first instance, as they are now all available across NW London practices. We may ask you to send us pictures. If you are called in for a face to face consultation, please follow the guidance your practice will provide, so that your care is as safe as we can make it.
Talk before you walk. If you think you need to see a GP or hospital doctor, it is best if you call ahead – either phone your GP surgery or 111 - please use 111 online in the first instance as this will be quicker. In a medical emergency, call 999.
We have learnt a lot from these new ways of working and they will be a part of how you access your GP in the future. You can help us by supporting everyone in your family to use the technology.
