HMC are proud to receive a CQC GOOD WITH OUTSTANDING IN RESPONSIVE, CARE OF OLDER PEOPLE, VULNERABLE ADULTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE following our inspection. The first outstanding awarded in the boroughs of B&D, Redbridge, Havering! Thank you to our wonderful team. We will continue to work hard and improve the service we offer to our incredible patients

DOWNLOAD THE NHS APP:

We would strongly encourage ALL patients to download the NHS APP to book appointments and request medication online, this is the single most helpful thing that patients can do to support their NHS GP. It will save time for frontline reception so we can answer calls and deal with queries more quickly.
