A&E might not be the best place for them
If the surgery is open please always try calling us first, and if we are closed call NHS 111 who can book you a GP appointment on the same day if needed or recommend other options available.
Please only attend A&E with your child in the event of a serious illness or accident.
We will always see children who need to be seen on that day, we have slots each afternoon in case of children’s emergencies coming in after school/nursery finishes.
There are now also extra new appointments at nearby local Access Hubs-The Nelson Medical Practice in the evenings and on weekends that we can book for you.
Ask at reception for more information
Please note the hubs are only available for patients registered with a Merton GP practice and is not a walk-in service
