Out of Hours and Emergencies
If GP appointments are needed on a Saturday, please call the reception during working Monday – Friday hours to book a Saturday appointment at Bedford Hill Practice/Balham Health Centre. This service is based on availability.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
In case of a life-threatening emergency, please dial 999.

Please be aware that when you register with The Open Door Surgery or Bec Family Practice our Clinical team strongly believe in the national vaccination and health care program. We expect all patients to take part in regular health checks and show 100% commitment to attend all appoints. As a patient this serves a tremendous benefit and will allow you to live life to the full, with good health.
If you do not participate in the national program and show a lack of commitment by not attending regular health checks, screenings and vaccinations etc. it makes it very difficult for us to look after you to the standard we expect as a practice.
To help us, to help you, please fully engage in your own healthcare so that we can maximise the service and care we provide to you.
You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
