Merton GP Access Hubs

Increased access to GP appointments in your area.

We offer same day appointments via telephone triage service. If you need to be seen by a GP on the day we will arrange for Doctor to call you back. If you need to be seen the Doctor will arrange an appropriate appointment for you.

But what happens when our appointment book is full?

As you may be aware the GP walk in centre in Merton which was based at the Wilson has been closed since March 2017. The funding has been reallocated to provide 2 new GP access hubs in each locality. The East Merton hub is currently based at Cricket Green Medical Centre (Myles Road, Mitcham) and the West Merton hub is located at the Nelson Medical Centre in Wimbledon.

The purpose of these hubs is to provide additional access for patients registered with Merton GP surgeries. If your surgery does not have appointment availability they can access appointments at the GP hub. You will be triaged by a GP and if you need to be seen, an appointment will be arranged for you. The hubs are currently open Monday to Friday 6.30pm-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am-8pm. There are weekend appointments with a Nurse for patients who require wound care.

You can also access appointments at the hub via NHS 111.
