The RGPA 'Hub' was created in 2015 and designed to extend access to routine GP appointments.
In Richmond, all GP practices work together to provide additional booked appointments at evening and weekends. These appointments are available at two conveniently located "hubs" in the borough.
If we are unable to offer you an appointment with a GP at our surgery the receptionist will be able to offer you an appointment at one of the 2 hubs. These additional appointments will suit anyone who needs an appointment on the same day or unable to see a GP during normal working hours.
When you attend the hub, you will be asked to give consent to the GP you are seeing to access your medical records. This helps the GP to better assess your condition and provide the most appropriate treatment. The GP will update your records so that your own practice is kept up to date.
In addition, the Richmond GP Alliance and Health Help Now have jointly developed a local website designed to help people find the right service in Richmond. The website has been enabled to to be used on mobile devices that have internet access. This means that it can be used on any smart phone or tablet with internet access, as well as via the desktop and laptop computers with internet access. The address is:
