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.
A GP federation is a group of general practices or surgeries forming an organisational entity and working together within the local health economy.READ MORE

Know where to go for healthcare in Waltham Forest this Spring bank holiday
GPs in Waltham Forest are urging people to use local healthcare services wisely over the Spring bank holiday weekend – and reminding them they can access treatment and advice from their local pharmacy and NHS 111.
The bank holiday weekend is a busy time for local GP practices and hospitals. To ensure everyone can receive the care and treatment they need, it is important to remember there are a number of ways to get advice and support from the NHS locally.
This includes visiting your local pharmacy for help treating coughs, colds and other minor ailments, and contacting NHS 111 free if you need health advice urgently.
It is also advisable to keep your medicine cabinet well stocked with supplies such as paracetamol, indigestion medication, ibuprofen, antihistamines and plasters to help you deal with any minor health issues, should the need arise.
If you have a long-term health condition, you should ensure you prepare for the upcoming bank holiday by requesting well in advance any repeat prescriptions you might need.
Over the bank holiday weekend, people in Waltham Forest have a number of healthcare options:
- GP appointments – Same day and pre- bookable appointments are available between 8am and 8pm throughout the long weekend, including bank holiday Monday (27 May). These appointments can be booked by calling your own GP practice as usual during working hours or calling the booking line directly on 020 8519 3999, or by calling NHS 111. The GP practices where these appointments are available are in Chingford, Walthamstow and Leytonstone.
- Pharmacy – Many common illnesses such as coughs or colds can be best and most easily treated by visiting your local pharmacy, where you can speak to a pharmacist without making an appointment. There are a number of pharmacies open over the long weekend. A full list will be available on http://www.walthamforestccg.nhs.uk/
- NHS 111 service – If you need medical help fast and your surgery is closed, you can call NHS 111 Clinical Assessment service on 1 1 1 at any time of day or night. Its trained advisors and experienced clinicians can assess you, offer advice and direct you to the right place for the medical care you need as quickly as possible.Dr Anwar Khan, local GP and Chair of NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “If you or your child do get ill over the bank holiday weekend, there are lots of ways that you can get the care you need. “No one wants to spend their bank holiday sitting in A&E and you don’t need to, as there are quicker, easier ways to get treatment, or to be seen by a nurse or doctor. “Going to the right place ensures you receive the help you require as quickly as possible, and it also helps to free up A&E for people with life threatening injuries and illnesses.”
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.
