When We Are Closed
If you live in Wandsworth and have an urgent medical problem which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please dial 111 to access the out of hours service. NHS 111 is free to call from landlines and mobiles.
If you live outside the Wandsworth area, or for any reason are unable to access NHS 111 by dialling 111, please call 020 3402 1125 instead. Calls to this number are charged at your network’s standard rates.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
Where to seek help when the surgery is closed
If you need urgent health care
- Please only call 999 if you believe there is a life-threatening emergency
- If you are told to go to hospital, then you must go. The NHS will help you get the care you need.
If you need urgent mental health care
If you need advice from a pharmacist that is not related to coronavirus
- For minor medical problems, not related to coronavirus, many local pharmacies will be open and are able to help this weekend, although their opening times may be different (click here for local pharmacies open over Easter weekend).

If you think you need urgent dental treatment

If you or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms

If you or people you live with do not have coronavirus symptoms and you think you may need advice from a GP
