Out of Hours: medical care when we are closed

It is usually best to get medical care from the team who knows you but if urgent, phone 111 or use 111-online . You will be directed to the most appropriate service. More information about 111

Out of hours services are complex - here is some advice to guide you.

Local services include:
Brent Urgent Care Centre ( at Central Middlesex Hospital, 24/7 ) ,
Edgware Walk-in Centre ( Edgware Community Hospital 7am-9pm ),
Northwick Park Urgent Care Centre (24/7).
You can look up all urgent care services on NHS.UK

Don't forget pharmacies which can offer excellent urgent care advice for minor conditions and are often open late - find an open pharmacy.

GP Enhanced Access Hubs

If you need an appointment in the evening up to 8pm or on Saturdays and Sundays there may be availability at one of the Extended Hours GP Access Hubs which are staffed by a local GP or Nurse at Central Middlesex Hospital. They will ask you to use Patchs, like we do for a pre-consultation and up to 80% are then offered a Face to Face appointment.

It is usually best to see your usual GP or Nurse for ongoing conditions but these Hubs may be suitable for other quick or one-off problems or if you cannot get a suitable appointment with us.

They can also offer such services as cervical smears and child vaccinations.

Ask at reception for availability in hours or call 111 which can also book appointments. Here is a video showing more details on Brent GP Access Hubs.

Out of hours pharmacies

Most local pharmacies have some late opening and operate a Bank Holiday rota. The local supermarket pharmacies are usually open late, typically until 8-11pm (Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons) and Peace Pharmacy in Wembley is open until 10pm every day and Warman-Freed in Golders Green until midnight every day. Try: find an open pharmacy.
