Seven day GP access for patients
Patients in Kensington and Chelsea and Queen's Park and Paddington are now able to access GP services 7 days a week, thanks to a new service launched by NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
Any patient who needs to see a GP or nurse urgently on Saturdays and Sundays can either walk in or book a same day appointment at a number of GP practices in the area. They do not need to be a member of the practice to use the service.
The practices that are offering this service on Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 5pm are:
Knightsbridge Medical Centre
71-75 Pavilion Road, London, SW1X 0ET
Tel: 020 8237 2600

Open Saturdays only between 9am and 12pm
Dr Fiona Butler, Chair of West London CCG, said: “We have introduced this service as part of our commitment to improve access to primary care for our patients.
“This service offers patients who need access to care at the weekend an alternative to A&E, and we hope that this will help free up A&E departments for those with life threatening illnesses or injuries.”
The enhanced service has been introduced as part of NHS West London CCG’s Out of Hospital Strategy, which aims to bring care closer to home and into a local, more familiar environment for the benefit of the patients.
A number of other practices in the area are operating a walk in and appointment service on Saturdays for their registered patients only. Some practices also have extended services offering early morning and weekday evening appointments for their registered patients.
