We would like to warmly invite you to our Digital Health and Wellbeing Day which is being hosted at the Practice site on Friday 27th May 2022. 

This event has been organised in collaboration with Homerton University Hospital and Age UK East London to teach patients about how to use IT, how to access online patient services, and explore functionalities of the NHS App; with an aim to address the ever-growing digital divide and the health inequalities that may ensue.

COVID-19 UPDATE

 

“The NHS in London is very busy due to rising coronavirus infection rates, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.

“GPs are providing more appointments, including evenings and weekends, for patients with urgent health needs. Contact your practice, or check their website, and they will tell you how to arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care.

“You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.

“Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.

“Thank you to Londoners for following the Tier 4 rules, which will help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe.”
