The Harrow GP out-of-hours Service provides advice, information and treatment for NHS patients who become unwell during the out-of-hours period when their own GP surgery is closed.

How does the out-of-hours service work?           

Harrow GP out-of-hours service does not offer walk-in appointments, so access to the service is via the national NHS 111 call line. Calls to NHS 111 are free when calling from a landline, and can be accessed 24 hours day, 365 days a year by dialling 111

The NHS 111 team will assess your condition over the phone and if it is clinically appropriate, they will refer your case to the out-of-hours service.  This will then result in either:

  • Further clinical assessment over the  telephone
  • A face to face appointment to attend a primary care centre to see a doctor

or

  • A home visit from one of our doctors

We provide GP out-of-hours services Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8.00am, and for 24 hours at weekends and during bank holidays.
