GP hubs will be offering appointments in the borough during the festive period, including on bank holidays.

The hub at Barking Community Hospital in Upney Lane will be open every day offering offering urgent, same day GP appointments, including from noon to 4pm on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

To book an urgent, same day appointment, call 020 3770 1888.

The walk-in services at Barking Community Hospital are open 7am to 10pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 10pm weekends and bank holidays, except Christmas Day.

Dr Waseem Mohi, chairman of Barking and Dagenham CCG, said: “The extra urgent GP appointments mean that even more people can get the care they need without waiting in A&E, freeing up these emergency services for people with the most serious illnesses or injuries.”
