The Aberfeldy Practice

Welcome to The Aberfeldy Practice

The Aberfeldy Practice

We aim to offer appointments when you want them in comfortable surroundings with polite and friendly staff. We want all patients to get an appointment and a service to suit their lifestyle.

Making an appointment

To speak to a GP and arrange an appointment please contact the practice between 8.30 and 12.30 and between 1.30 and 6pm

The surgery has developed an appointment system called Dr First. Instead of reception directly booking your appointment, one of our Doctors will phone you to discuss your problem and arrange an appointment and or appropriate follow up. This will happen within the same session (morning or afternoon) and usually within an hour. We have found that many patients value this service and a significant number of concerns can be dealt with by telephone consultation alone without the need to wait for a face to face appointment. For both telephone and face to face consultations we try to provide a choice of doctors or nurses wherever possible, although we would encourage you to see one GP/nurse to achieve continuity of care with the clinician who knows you best. Patients with urgent problems will be seen on the same day. For non-urgent problems we will strive to offer an appointment within 48 hours.

Other services available at the surgery include: psychology appointments, phlebotomy (blood tests), diabetes specialist clinics, welfare and benefit advice, midwife antenatal clinics, specialist contraception services (implants and coils), child health clinics and a dedicated health visiting team for the under fives. Our practice nurses offer appointments for: cervical screening (smear tests), family planning (contraception), ear syringing, management of diabetes, COPD, asthma, hypertension, smoking cessation support, travel advice and vaccinations.

Opening hours

Our reception is open:


Monday to Friday 8.30am to 6.00pm. With the exception of Wednesday morning when we open at 8.15am. The first Friday of every month we close for a practice meeting from 12.30pm to 2.30pm.

General practice in tower hamlets is committed to providing the very best for patients. On one afternoon a month practice staff (GP's, nurses and administration team) attend training to update and consolidate their skills. During that time cover is provided by the local out of hours service.
