Welcome to Upminster Medical Centre.
The staff who work here are part of a caring team for residents in Upminster, Cranham and adjoining Hornchurch areas of London Borough of Havering.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us by completing a short “Friends & Family Test” or giving us your valuable feedback by sending us your feedback and suggestions.

Patients will be either entering or leaving the premises via this door. During Saturday Clinic Car Park will also be used for queueing up of patients before they enter the building. For these reasons Car Park will be closed for public. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

For ALL patients aged between 50 years and 64 years - not any in At-Risk Group: We will be setting up Flu Clinics for this cohort of patients during November onwards, depending on when we receive our supply of vaccines.
