About the service

We offer evening and weekend appointments to all patients in west Essex when your GP practice is closed. 

The Evening and Weekend GP service offers additional, pre-booked appointments at convenient times to suit your needs. 

We operate from six locations across Epping Forest, Harlow and Uttlesford and appointments are booked through your GP practice. It is not a ‘walk-in’ service and is for booked appointments only.

How does this service work? 


With your permission, we can access your medical records so the clinical staff treating will be aware of any medical history and can provide seamless care.  It also ensures your medical record is updated and that all information is fed back to your own surgery.

The service is commissioned by NHS West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and has been running since October 2015. It has grown so that we are now able to see 1,000 patients a week across our six hubs and our patient feedback has been incredibly positive.

As part of the Evening and Weekend GP Service, we offer video appointments. These are video calls (similar to Skype or Facetime) where you can speak to a GP at an allocated time. Find out more about video appointments.

We have also launched a new FREE health app and web site called Health Help Now which provides health and guidance to help you find the right local service for your needs.

Patients can change or cancel their appointment by calling 0300 303 7300.
