Welcome to the Waltham Forest Federated GP Network

WF GP FedNet provide NHS Primary Care Services in Waltham Forest pooling the skills and resources of local GPs making available larger scale services throughout the borough. This helps to form part of the overall local NHS Strategy to attract more services into the community, to help improve care and treatments so that residents are active and healthy.

As a GP Federation our remit is to share responsibility for delivering high quality, patient-focussed services to Waltham Forest. This can include developing services specifically to suit local needs and submitting bids to deliver services which are already part of primary care services, or may be delivered in the future. GP Federations improve service integration between practices and providers which improves the quality and safety of services for all our users. This model, supported in NHS England’s Five Year Forward View, provides opportunities for practices to come together to explore new, innovative ways of delivering Primary Care at scale to the borough.

About Us

Anticoagulation Service

Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 we just want to inform you that our anticoagulation clinics remain open during this time. At this time, we will be taking extra precautions for the safety of our patients and staff members.

To ensure this, we will be calling all patients on the day of their appointment to screen for any symptoms they may have before attending clinic.

Please only attend the anticoagulation clinic at your given appointment time. This is important due to having as few patients in the clinic as possible.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0208 298 6491

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new anticoagulation service, which introduces increased 
service sites across the Waltham Forest Borough, enabling better access to anticoagulation services.

Please note that clinic at Kings Head Medical Centre is temporarily closed. Patient’s will be seen at Handsworth Medical Centre whilst we work to reopen this –  Due to the current outbreak, we have decided not to re-open the anti-coagulation clinic at Kings Head Medical Practice at this time until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience caused. We hope to re-open this clinic as soon as it is safe to do so and will inform you of this in due course. At present, we do have other anti-coagulation clinics open throughout the borough.
