The NHS is very busy responding to the coronavirus pandemic and, at certain times, GP practices may need to prioritise patients with the most urgent health needs. If you have a health issue that isn’t urgent, advice is available on the NHS website or NHS app or you can speak to your local pharmacist. You can also use e-consult* which is available here.  If you aren’t sure what to do, please contact our Practice Reception who can advise you on how to get the help you need. 


Please continue to attend tests, vaccinations and screening when invited. is also available 24/7 for urgent health advice or by calling 111, and 999 is for emergencies.

*Please note your eConsult request will be processed by a central admin team who work across Central London practices to ensure all requests are dealt with appropriately as soon as possible. If you prefer not to share your data in this way, you can continue to call the practice during normal working hours.



The Connaught Square Practice is a General Practice in Central London; we have cared for patients since 1906. The doctors who worked here then were among the first women to graduate from medical school in the world. Dame Annis Gillie ran the practice from the early 1930s until 1964, including the war years.

Since joining The Connaught Square Practice in 1984, Dr. Ruth O'Hare has cultivated a strong patient-centered tradition, providing high quality and innovative primary care services to the Westminster community. Dr Ericson Laudato joined the practice as a Partner in October 2014.

Practice Mission Statement: High quality general practice now and for the future, caring for all

Our Values: Compassion | Putting patients first | Continuity of care | Supporting all members of the team | Commitment to learning

How does the Covid-19 virus affect our practice?

1. Our doors will close at 18:30pm until further notice.

2. All GP appointments are telephone appointments. If the GP needs to see you, they only can offer you a face to face appointment.

3. We are only conducting urgent and necessary treatment and this includes blood tests, child immunisations and wound care. Please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions. 

4. You can request your repeat prescription online, by posting your prescription request to us or by dropping off a prescription request through the front door post flap at 41 Connaught Square, London W2 2HL. Patients over 80 years of age and anyone who is frail can make a repeat prescription request through their community pharmacy.

5. Primary care staff across each borough will be able to access your full medical record without consent during the COVID-19 pandemic but will only do so when this is necessary to provide you with care. They will be required to use a smartcard which confirms their identity, and which limits their access and actions to those appropriate for their role. They will all have been trained to understand their professional and legal responsibilities in providing you with care.
