Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
NHS 111 Service: When our practice is closed you can still get support. You can get expert medical advice and useful ingformation by calling NHS 111 or through 111 online. The NHS service is available 24 hours a day and can provide information, issue prescriptions to a pharmacy of your choice, book a GP appointment, and, if necessary, refer people to emergency services.
Emergency: Dial 999 or go to your nearest A&E Department. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath do constitute an emergency (you must not dial 999 for anything other than an emergency).
Out of Hours Service: If you phone the surgery when we are closed you will be automatically transferred to the out of hours service SELDOC (South East London Doctors on call). Alternatively you can phone SELDOC directly on: 020 8693 9066. You will be given advice, asked to visit the out of hours centre, or be visited by the doctor on call.
