We also offer appointments on the day for patients that need to be seen urgently.  We cannot guarantee that these appointments will be with a doctor of your choice although we try to offer continuity of care as much as possible.

It is advisable to ring early in the morning for appointments on the day.

Please let the surgery know in good time if you are unable to attend.

As you will understand sometimes people do need emergency treatment, or need longer of our time, and we appreciate your patience if this happens.  We will try to inform you if your doctor is running late.

If you would like a chaperone for your appointment please let us know.

If you require a translator for your consultation please let us know when you book your appointment.

Please also let us know if you or your child has a rash with fever and we will try to minimize your contact with other patients.

There is always a doctor at the surgery from 8.00am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday, to take your call in an emergency. 

Outside of our usual opening hours our answerphone will give you the number for SELDOC (South East London Doctors Co-operative) which is a co-operative of local GP’s providing out-of-hours care.

If you need to speak to a GP when the surgery is closed, please ring SELDOC on 020 8693 9066 and a receptionist will take your details. 

A doctor will call you back and give advice, or you may be asked to attend the base, at Dulwich  Hospital, East Dulwich Grove, SE22 8PT or at Lewisham hospital. If needed a visit may be arranged.

If you need medical advice or dental advice outside of surgery hours you can call NHS 111 by calling '111'.

If you need emergency treatment in a critical or life threatening situation, you should go to the nearest Accident and Emergency department or call 999 for an ambulance.


Telephone consultations

If you wish to speak to a doctor or nurse please call before midday and we will call you back.

We only accept urgent phone calls after midday and these are dealt with by the duty doctor.

We ask that if you have rung the surgery that you do make sure the telephone number you give to reception is correct and that you will be able to take the call when it is returned.


If you are unable to come to the surgery, please try to make your request for a visit before 10.00 and if possible please tell the receptionist the reason why you are requesting a visit so that we can prioritise these calls.

Where possible you will see your usual doctor.

In the time it takes a doctor to see one patient at home, we can see four patients in the surgery, so we appreciate it if you can come to the surgery when ever possible.

Visits are usually made after morning surgery, or early afternoon.

Minor Ailments and Minor Eye Conditions Schemes

For advice on colds, hayfever, sore throats and minor allergies and irritations, your local pharmacy can provide advice and over-the-counter medicines without an appointment.

The Minor Eye Conditions Scheme allows patients across Lambeth to access NHS treatment for a range of eye conditions. Instead of having to visit
hospital for treatment, patients can now be seen by a highly trained optometrist based in a local optician's practice.
