Walk In Centre/Hub
The walk in centre has changed from a walk-in-and-wait service to a pre-booked appointment system. Appointments are only available to people who are registered with a Tower Hamlets GP Practice and can be booked either via your practice or by calling 111.
Appointments will be either with a GP or an ANP (Advanced Nurse Practitioner). ANPs will offer the same service as a GP in these appointments and all clinicians will have access to your medical records. This service will be available for 8am to 8pm (last bookable appointment is at 7.30pm) 365 days a year.
We do not provide the following in these appointments; you will need to see the GP you are registered with for these things:
- Private Medicals and Home visits
- Repeat Prescriptions (unless in an emergency)
- Private referrals and statutory sick notes
- Minor surgery
- Travel immunisations and medicals
- Referrals to NHS services (apart from two week wait cancer referrals
