Thank you for visting THE FOREST PRACTICE NHS Choices website. You will find information about our practice, staff and some of the services we offer.

Please visit our website: for further information about our practice. 

We are currently registering new patients within the catchment area of E7. You can register Monday to Friday between our opening times.


GP Practices are under a lot of strain and pressure and the demand for appointments is increasing. We understand that it is hard to get an appointment with a doctor and you may have to wait longer than usual to see them.

We offer pre-bookable appointments (2 weeks in advance) and on the day appointments.

  • Pre-bookable appointments should be used for routine, non-urgent reasons.
  • On the day appointments should be used for emergency reasons only.



In some instances, you may not need to see your doctor, depending on the medical problem you have. 

Pharmacists in Newham can now give advice and treatment on a range of minor health problems for FREE. You do need to be registered with a Newham GP in order to access this service.

What treatment is available on the scheme? The pharmacy first scheme covers a range of short-term drug treatments. You can see your pharmacist up to twice for most conditions in the scheme. The pharmacist may need to refer you back to your GP if more treatment is necessary. If appropriate, the pharmacist will supply you with medicine like Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Anti-fungal treatment etc. This medicine is only for you. It may not be the right medicine for other people, even if they have the same symptoms.
