General Practice

GP and patient 2.JPG

GPs look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems. They also provide health education, offer advice on smoking and diet, run clinics, give vaccinations and carry out simple surgical operations.

GPs usually work in practices as part of a team, which includes nurses, healthcare assistants, practice managers, receptionists and other staff. Practices also work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as health visitors, midwives, and social services.

How to register with a GP

You can register with a GP practice of your choice, as long as you live within its catchment area and it is accepting new patients.

Evening and weekend apppointments

Evening and weekend appointments are available with GPs in Brent via GP access hubs. 

A GP access hub is a GP practice that offers evening and weekend appointments for patients registered with other practices in the area.

If patients are unable to get an appointment with their practice, they can ask for a GP Access Hub appointment. Nurse appointments are also offered at some hubs.  Patients may also call 111.

Patient choice

If your GP refers you… you can choose

Our CCG meets the standards for patient choice. If your GP needs to refer you to a particular service for a physical or mental health condition, in most cases you have a legal right to choose which hospital or service you go to. You can also choose where to give birth. This includes NHS and many private hospitals that provide services to the NHS. You may also choose your clinical team led by a consultant or named healthcare professional.

There are a number of places where you can access information about hospitals and services:

  • You can ask your GP about what might be the best choice for you, once you tell them what matters to you most.
  • You can compare information about hospitals, services and consultants at www.nhs.uk. This website includes information about the quality of care, waiting times, parking and travel. Simply search using the ‘Services Near You’ option available at the top of page. You can also search according to the operations and treatments that the hospitals or services offer.               

For more information on your rights around patient choice, you can visit www.nhs.uk/patientchoice, ask your GP, or read this online leaflet
