Making an appointment

We hold clinics on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, between 9am and 1pm. Please note that a first appointment is held on a Tuesday, with Thursday providing the follow-up appointment.
We do have Saturday clinics but they are by appointment only.

Appointments and referrals can be made by you or your GP via The Electronic Referral Service (e-RS). If you have no GP, there is a walk-in Primary Care Centre (GP service) at Homerton where the appropriate referral will be made if deemed necessary.
