When We Are Closed

If you require medical advice when the surgery is closed,

NHS 111

please call 111 (Freephone number). They will be able to advise you appropriately.

The NHS 111 service is a free NHS telephone number that makes it easier for the public to access local healthcare.

The service operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

Calls to 111 are assessed, advice given and, if needed, patients are directed to the most appropriate local health services. This could be Accident and Emergency (A&E), an urgent care centre, an out of hours GP, a community nurse, a walk-in centre, an emergency dentist or a pharmacy.

There are now only three numbers to know: 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery telephone number and 111. NHS 111 replaced NHS Direct.

Calls to 111 are free, including from mobiles.

Urgent Care and Walk-in Centres

Use your local urgent care centre or walk-in centre if you need medical treatment or advice which does not need a visit to A&E.

These centres treat most injuries and illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening. For example sprains and strains, broken bones, minor burns and scalds, minor head and eye injuries, bites and stings. The following are the details of Walk-in Centre:

  • Edmonton NHS Walk-in Centre
    Evergreen Primary Care Centre,
    1 Smythe Close, Edmonton N9 0TW.
    Tel: 020 8887 8355

    Open weekends and bank holidays only from 8am to 8pm
  • Chase Farm Hospital Urgent Care Centre

    Open daily 9am to 9pm.
  • North Middlesex Hospital urgent care centre
    Sterling Way,
    Edmonton, N18 1QX.

    Open daily 8am to 10pm.

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.
