The first outstanding awarded in the boroughs of B&D, Redbridge, Havering! Thank you to our wonderful team. We will continue to work hard and improve the service we offer to our incredible patients

DOWNLOAD THE NHS APP:

We would strongly encourage ALL patients to download the NHS APP to book appointments and request medication online, this is the single most helpful thing that patients can do to support their NHS GP. It will save time for frontline reception so we can answer calls and deal with queries more quickly.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
