Booking GP appointments over Christmas and New Year

If you feel you need to see a GP over the holiday period, Waltham Forest residents can book GP appointments at one of three Enhanced GP Service hubs.

The hubs in Chingford, Leytonstone and Walthamstow will be open from 9am to 5pm on:

  • Christmas Eve (Saturday 24 December)
  • Bank Holiday Tuesday (27 December)
  • New Year’s Eve (Sunday 31 December)
  • Bank Holiday Monday (2 January).

Residents can book an appointment by calling 020 8519 3999.

As the hubs will be closed on Christmas Day (Sunday 25 December) and New Year’s Day (Monday 1 January), residents who feel they cannot wait until the following day to see a GP, should call NHS 111, where they will be advised on the most appropriate health care service for them.

If you have an urgent health care need, call the free NHS 111 number. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
