The Practice | NHS Hounslow | News | 5 May 2009

A new GP practice opens today (5 May 2009) in Central Feltham. The Practice Feltham Centre will join the four other GP practices at The Feltham Centre for Health.

This is part of NHS Hounslow’s drive to improve access to primary care services by: increasing the number of GP practices across Hounslow; working with GPs to extend opening hours, patients can see many GPs early morning, evening and Saturday morning; opening a new a walk-in service at The Heart of Hounslow (8am to 8pm every 365 days a year) increasing the opportunities to see a GP at a time that is convenient.

Dr Rahat Ghazanfar, GP at the newly opened surgery, The Practice Feltham Centre, said “This is a great facility and I’m happy to be part of delivering better services for patients in the area. I’m a GP here and also at Heart of Hounslow where we provide a walk-in service. The feedback from patients is already very positive – they very much like the choice now available and added ease in seeing a GP.”

You can phone The Practice Feltham Centre on 020 8104 0840.

To get the most out of the NHS, patients need to be registered with a GP practice. To find a GP practice, patients can type in their home postcode on the NHS choices website http://www.nhs.uk and find a list of the local surgeries, doctors and details of their opening times. GP surgeries have their own geographical areas they serve and whilst a postcode search may highlight the nearest surgery, it does not necessarily mean that you will be automatically be able to register there.
