When We Are Closed
Call 999 in any emergency, like having chest pains or shortness of breath
NHS Advice / Out of hours - 111
If you are feeling unwell and need a telephone health assessment, please call the NHS 111 service free of charge from any phone by dialling "111". Monday till Friday nights 6.30pm - 8am & Weekends from 6.30pm on Friday till 8am on Monday
The out-of-hours telephone service provides advice and treatment to:
- registered patients
- residents staying with registered patients
- residents not yet registered with a GP
Please do not use out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery reopens. When you call, a receptionist will take details and an experienced clinician or GP will call you back. Many Tower Hamlets GPs work for this service.
From the 1st August 2018 St Andrews and The Barkantine service will no longer offer ‘walk-in’ provision. Instead, the service will offer bookable appointment slots, available via NHS 111, or the patient’s regular practice. To use the service, residents must be registered with a Tower Hamlets GP surgery and we are encouraging everyone who is unregistered to do so.
All the centres below are open 7 days a week from 8am-8pm but you may be turned away from 7pm onwards if the centre is already very busy.
