Our Mission Statement

Here at St James Medical Practice we endeavour to serve our local community in providing the best quality medical care.

We offer a friendly, welcoming environment in which we hope patients feel comfortable and confident enough to confide in us.  

Please Note:

From the 12th of June ALL same day urgent appointments  will be put on a telephone triage with a GP who will then decide when you need to come in or if they can help within the telephone call.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank You

Serving You

We are a committed and well established family GP Practice based in Walthamstow.

We pride ourselves in providing our patients with high standards of care in a friendly environment. We try to achieve this by working with and for our patients and the community and we are proud to be part of the Patient Participation Group (PPG).



Consultations are by appointments and can be booked in person or over the telephone. Pre-bookable are available up to 4 weeks in advance and a number of appointments are available for same day appointment requests.

Patients have the right to see the GP of their choice but this may cause a delay in being seen.


Consultations are by appointment and can be booked in person at the surgery or by telephone during the office hours or alternatively on-line.

We aim to see patients within 20 minutes upon arrival of their appointment and if this is not the case then an explanation will be provided. We hope you will all bear with us, as some patient’s appointments can take longer than their scheduled appointment time.


All new patients are offered an appointment for a New Patient Health Check (NPHC) at the point of registration.


Our telephone lines are usually very busy, therefore we would like to kindly suggest that you only telephone between 08:00 and 10:00 if you need:

  • to make either an appointment for that day
  • urgent need of medical attention
  • to cancel an existing appointment.

For all routine enquiries, results, administration enquiries please call after 11:00.


When booking an appointment you may be asked the nature of the call, this is purely to ensure that we direct your requirement to the appropriate person.



Access to the health centre and its consulting rooms are accessible for disabled visitors.
