NHS 111 service

NHS 111 is a new service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time. For more information visit www.nhs.uk/111.

Pharmacy First

If you are registered with a GP in Tower Hamlets you will be able to take part in Pharmacy First, a new scheme that allows faster access to advice and treatment for short-term minor conditions.

The conditions covered by the scheme include headaches, colds, sore throats, cough, fever, hay fever, constipation, diarrhoea, mouth ulcers, teething, indigestion, athletes foot, head lice, thrush, bites and stings, certain skin conditions, back pain, sprains and strains and eye conditions.

To register for the scheme you need to visit your GP practice and get a Pharmacy First registration voucher, which you take to a pharmacy in Tower Hamlets.

To use the scheme all you have to do is return to the same pharmacy.

Repeat Dispensing

If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regularly, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing from the pharmacist. This means you can collect your repeat medicines directly from the pharmacy without having to visit the surgery or make an appointment to see the doctor or practice nurse every time you need more medicine.

If you would like to be considered for repeat dispensing the first step is to talk to your doctor and ask them if you can use repeat dispensing.

  • Wapping Group Practice: Update For Patients

    You probably know that we are a large Practice, with more than 10000 patients, with a team of doctors, nurses, health care assistants, receptionists, administrators, medical secretary and Practice Manager.

    2017 was a very difficult year for the Practice, and the loyalty of our staff was strained and tested, due to both internal and external pressures. However, 2018 has been a positive year so far. We have now appointed two new doctors and the first of two new receptionists.

    The welfare of our patients is paramount to the Practice and we deeply value your association with us. The dedication of our team is invaluable; better staffing and other planning initiatives give us the opportunity to further improve morale and efficiency, placing us in a strong position to meet future challenges with confidence.
