What is a polyclinic?
Polyclinics are a new way for people to receive healthcare easily, effectively and efficiently. They are tailored around the needs of patients and ours, at Alexandra Avenue, is designed to put accessibility for all at the heart of healthcare in Harrow. It provides many of the services that are found in hospitals, but is closer to home for many people, with shorter waiting times, and has a GP surgery open from 8am-8pm every day of the week.
The Alexandra Avenue polyclinic gives you access to a wide range of health, wellbeing and support services –all in one place, without the need for an appointment.
What does it offer?
GP surgery (provided by The Ridgeway Surgery)
Care for minor illnesses
Specialist advice on medication
Immunisation and travel vaccination
Help to quit smoking, manage your diet and sexual health
Your GP may refer you to the polyclinic for minor surgery, blood tests or screening tests. Local GPs can choose to be linked to and work with the polyclinic, so patients from these practices can also benefit from the facilities available.
