To protect our other patients and staff please do not visit our surgery if you are suffering from flu like symptoms, diarrhoea or vomiting in the last four days.  The doctors will be happy to do a telephone consultation.  Ask reception for details.

Help the NHS reduce spending by only ordering what you need on your prescription.  Please let the staff know if you no longer require a medication.  This will enable the NHS to reallocate funding. Thank you for your help. 

The Patient Group hold patient education evenings.  Please contact them via e-mail or see the notice board for more information NMCPATIENT.GROUP@NHS.NET

When We Are Closed

closed_signThere is a service available for 'out of hours' (i.e. when the centre is closed) provided by the partnership of East London Co-operatives (PELC). PELC's Telephone Advice Service is in operation between 18:30 - 08:00.

Visits can be organised by ringing the number 111. The doctors who staff PELC are all experienced local GPs.

When you phone the surgery "after hours" you will here a recorded message which will tell you which number to ring. Please have a pencil or pen to hand as there is usually more then one number to take note of.
