Doctors in north east London are urging people to use local health services wisely over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend to ensure everyone can get the care they need.

If you live in Barking and Dagenham, Havering or Redbridge you can book a GP appointment over the bank holiday by calling the GP hubs booking hotline on 020 3770 1888 (open from 8am to 8pm) or by calling 111 any time.

You can also get help with minor injuries and illnesses at Urgent Treatment Centres at Barking Community Hospital and Harold Wood Polyclinic. These are open 8am to 9pm, seven days a week. You can call NHS 111 to book an appointment or walk in and wait to be seen. You do not need to be registered with a GP.

If you find yourself or someone you know needing mental health support over the bank holiday, you can call the NHS crisis lines. These are free, open 24/7, and available to adults, children and young people. You will speak to experienced staff who can help you. If you are concerned about someone you know please encourage them to call. While it’s preferable for them to call themselves, you can also call on their behalf: 0800 995 1000

Covid-19 vaccinations will be taking place as normal over the bank holiday so if you have an appointment please attend.
