GPs and nurses can now offer patients appointments from 6.30pm-8pm, Monday to Friday and from 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday.

These new hours are in addition to existing GP services, meaning that residents can now pre-book GP and nurse appointments from 8am-8pm seven days a week.

Any patient registered with an Ealing GP can access these appointments at three practices across the borough. Appointments can be booked at any one of these practices through your local GP practice or by calling NHS 111 when your GP practice is closed.

This is a really exciting time for Ealing residents as they will now be able to make an appointment with a GP or nurse at a time and in a place that is convenient for them seven days a week.

As well as improving GP services, this new offering is set to improve:

  • patient experience and
  • reduce avoidable A&E visits and unscheduled hospital admissions.

For more information or to book an appointment with a GP or nurse please contact your local GP practice or call NHS 111.

Evening and weekend GP appointments are open to all patients in Ealing, seven days a week. You can book an appointment from your own practice with a GP at three practices across the borough. 

Appointments are available at 

  • Sunrise Medical Centre in Southall
  • Elmbank Surgery in Hanwell
  • Florence Road Surgery in Ealing Broadway.
