School Street Surgery Opening Hours

Val our Practice Nurse is usually here:

Monday to Thursday 8.00am – 12.30pm

Monday and Tuesday 2.30pm – 5.00pm

Please remember to allow at least 72 hours (three working days) for repeat medication requests.

We do our best to keep these hours updated but due to staffing levels, as School Street Surgery is a branch surgery, with limited staffing, opening times may sometimes be subject to change at short notice. Please see notices on display at the surgery or ask our staff.

Our main surgery at Gold Street is open from 8.00am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday (7.00am on Mondays).

There are also a limited number of telephone consultation slots between 6.30pm and 7.00pm Tuesday to Friday. Please ask the receptionist.


If you are confronted by a serious urgent problem such as acute chest pain, possible broken bones or severe bleeding, go to your nearest Accident and emergency department or call an ambulance (telephone 999) at your discretion.

Weekend And Night Cover

For emergency medical attention when the surgery is closed, or for medical advice at any time, please telephone NHS 111 (just dial 111 - calls are free from landlines and mobiles).

Evening and Weekend Appointments Available

Patients can see a GP, nurse or healthcare assistant for routine appointments in the evenings and over the weekends. The Evening and Weekend GP service offers additional, pre-booked appointments at convenient times to suit your needs.

The service operates from six locations across Epping Forest, Harlow and Uttlesford and appointments are booked through our receptionists. It is not a ‘walk-in’ service and is for booked appointments only.

To book an evening or weekend appointment, contact us in the usual way. We will book an appointment at a local hub - through our booking system - and ask permission to access your medical records.

We will provide you with a date, time and location for your appointment.
