Bank Holiday hub appointments

Posted on December 29th, 2021

We are offering GP hub appointments out-of-hours throughout the weekend and bank holiday period. These are to support Richmond patients with urgent healthcare issues which can’t wait until the normal opening hours of their own GP, and to relieve pressure on walk-in centers and accident & emergency departments.

If you think you need an appointment, you can call either 111 or 0333 405 4060. Please only do this with new medical issues: these appointments are not intended to deal with long-term problems, nor with administrative issues.

In particular, if you have run out of a repeat medication, you can get this from your pharmacist in an emergency without needing to talk to a doctor. The NHS allows pharmacies to issue emergency supplies of medication where necessary, and this only requires your pharmacist to talk to you and confirm that you’ve had the medication before.

You can check whether your normal pharmacy is open via the NHS website, and find one which is open in the same place.
