Extended Hours Appointments
Here at Half Penny Steps we also offer pre-bookable appointments at St Charles Hospital Extended Hours Hub to see a GP. This is part of a Extended Hours Service commissioned by us and other West London practices.
The appointments can only be booked via the practice and are with a GP.
Appointments are available:
Monday to Friday: 6pm - 9pm
Saturday: 8am - 8pm
Sunday: 6pm - 9pm
We would highly recommend the use of these appointments especially after the end of the Walk-In service. They are highly under utilized and are always available.
These appointments are only available for patients registered to a West London Practice and can only be booked via the practice.
