We might advise you to attend one of our clinics to see us, or to collect medication

To help us maintain safe distancing, please attend on your own. You will be asked to clean your hands, check your temperature, and put on a face mask before entering.
From Monday 9 November 2020, you will only be able to enter Homerton Hospital from the main entrance on Homerton Row.
There may be people waiting outside the the clinic, but please report to the clinic doors and press the buzzer to let the reception know you have an appointment. Occasionally you may be asked to wait outside. We recommend bringing an umbrella or water resistant coat, in case of rain.

 

Please do not attend the clinic if you or anyone you live with has a high temperature, new persistent cough, or a change in your sense of smell/taste – or if you have been advised to self-isolate by NHS Track and Trace. If you are unwell call NHS 111.
