If you have a medical concern that cannot wait until the next appointment, please call us between 9am-11am. The reception team will then add you on our on-call doctors list and you'll be contacted on the same day.

EVENINGS & WEEKENDS

We work with local partners to improve patient care through collaborative and integrated service delivery whilst supporting general practice working. The Enhanced Access Hubs are managed by the Federation. They enable patients to see a variety of clinicians to be seen outside of core service hours.

Patients can book appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturdays. 

Appointments are offered at a choice of two hubs, one located in the north of the borough and one in the south. Patients can book into any hub of their choosing by speaking to their registered GP surgery or by calling the hub service when their surgery is closed. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide this service to patients who are not registered with a GP in the Westminster area.

The two locations are:


Connaught Square practice
41 Connaught Square, St George's Fields, London W2 2HL
Weekdays 6.30pm - 8.30pm Saturdays 9am to 5pm


Pimlico Health at the Marven
46-50 Lupus St, Pimlico, London SW1V 3EB
Weekdays 6.30pm - 8.30pm Saturdays 9am to 5pm

 

 

HOW CAN PATIENTS BOOK IN?

  • You can do this via your registered GP practice requesting an appointment at the enhanced access hub

  • Online through Airmid (previously known as SystmOnline)

  • For enquires or to cancel your appointment after 6:30pm you can email

  • Connaught square hub: hcl.hclcommsenhancedaccess@nhs.net

When you call 111, the first voice you will hear is one of our specially trained call assessors who will take you through a series of questions to determine how we can help. We also have a team of clinicians on hand within our control room who is able to provide additional assessment and advice, when required, over the phone. Our team of clinicians include GPs, nurses, pharmacists as well as dental and mental health nurses.
