We have  pharmacists in the practice team now who can treat you for minor ailments and help you with medication queries.

NHS Brent Health App

Brent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) launched the free app in response to calls from patient groups. Brent Health App’s purpose is threefold:

  • To communicate health news
  • Help find local services
  • Provide healthcare information.

Users can also book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions, access summary medical records, find local services and use as a symptom checker.

To add the app to your phone for free, search Brent Health App in Apple App Store or Google Play.

Sharps Bins

The practice no longer accepts the disposal of sharps bins from patients. Kindly call the Brent Council for more information.

For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
