Healthcare Services in Hammersmith and Fulham over the bank holiday weekend

Many of us are looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend ahead – and GP’s in Hammersmith and Fulham are asking patients to make the most of the extra day off work by using the most appropriate NHS service if they need medical help or advice.

If you need to use NHS services over the bank holiday, using the right one can ensure that you get the fastest, most appropriate treatment.  Whilst many people automatically head to A&E when something goes wrong, this is usually not the best option, particularly for minor problems such as coughs, colds, strains and sprains.

A&E is for serious accidents and emergencies.  If you’ve sprained your ankle, cut your finger or are suffering with a cough or cold, you will get faster and more appropriate advice elsewhere.  After all, who wants to spend their bank holiday sitting in a busy A&E department when you don’t really need to?

 ​​Alternative NHS services available to Hammersmith and Fulham residents over the bank holiday are:​

  • Self-care – people suffering from minor ailments such as coughs, colds and grazes should treat themselves at home or visit their local pharmacy
  • GP out-of-hours service – If you need to see a doctor when your GP surgery is closed, GP out-of-hours services are available on the usual surgery number or by calling NHS  111 direct and are staffed by local doctors and nurses who can offer advice or, if necessary, treatment at home or in a local health centre. Please see the GP out-of-hours service table below for further information.
  • Pharmacies – your local pharmacist is qualified to offer advice on health issues and medication as well as treat headaches, an upset stomach and other common illnesses. They can also sometimes issue you with an emergency supply of your repeat medication without you having to​​ speak to a doctor.​​
    A list of opening hours for Hammersmith and Fulham pharmacies over the holidays can be found below.​
  • NHS 111 – NHS 111 is a free phone service that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It offers a one-stop number for patients with urgent, but not life-threatening symptoms.
  • Urgent Care Centre (UCC) and Walk-in Centre - with no appointment necessary your local centres are managed by doctors and nurses who are available to deal with minor illnesses and injuries, such as cuts, burns, sprains and suspected breaks.  

The following Urgent Care Centres and Walk-in Centres are available in the borough:

  • Charing Cross Hospital Urgent Care Centre, Fulham Palace Road, London W6 8RF
  • Hammersmith Hospital Urgent Care Centre, Du Cane Road, London W12 0HS
  • Parsons Green NHS Walk-In Centre, 5-7 Parsons Green, London SW6 4UL
