Welcome to The Elmhurst Practice
With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisation.
Access and Parking
Disabled access is available to the side of the building near to the car park entrance. Disabled toilet and baby changing facilities are available.
There is a pay and display car park at the rear of the building. This belongs to Redbridge Council and not the surgery.
New Patient Registrations
We are open for new patient registrations and have made it easier for you to register with us during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Please select the new patients tab at the top of the page for more information.
COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME
We urge everyone aged 34 and above who has not yet had their first vaccine to book on the national booking system. Anyone aged over 50 can book on the national site or call their GP.
If you have had your first vaccine, please make sure you have the second vaccine to ensure maximum protection. If you don’t hear about your second vaccination and it is more than 77 days since your first vaccine, there’s information on how to get your second dose.
There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for pregnant women, frontline health and social care staff and carers at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)
Getting the help you need
Some consultations are over the phone and via video but will assess your situation and invite you into the practice if needed.
We can arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care but please don't visit without an appointment. Appointments will be held in the best way to keep you safe from Covid.
You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.
Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.
Please help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe by following the latest rules.
Certificate of vaccination
Your General Practice is unable to offer you a certification of covid vaccination, a vaccination passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against covid-19. You can however find details of all your vaccinations on the NHS App.
Proof of vaccination documents have not yet been developed and as such cannot be provided by your GP. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
Please do not come to the surgery - please call us or message online instead - regardless of whether you have symptoms or not.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation we have changed how we deliver appointments. We are now no longer offering face to face appointments unless a patient has been triaged first by a clinician either by phone or online econsult. The majority of issues can be dealt with by phone but if you need to be seen our clinicians will organise this. We have also had to stop some routine services at this difficult time.
