How do I book an appointment?
Contact your GP practice in the usual way to request an appointment. If there is no appointment available at your practice, they may offer you an appointment with the GP Extended Access Service, if this is right for you.
If your practice is closed and you need a GP, please contact the out-ofhours service SELDOC on 020 8693 9066 or NHS 111. They will also be able to book an appointment for you with the GP Extended Access Service. Please note that your consent will be required in order for an appointment to be booked for you.
If urgent care is required please call ‘111’ for further advice. If your need is life threatening, please go to A&E or call 999.
For support with the management of minor ailments, please contact your local pharmacist or visit the NHS Choices website www.nhs.uk or Health Help Now www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net.
Will I see my own GP and/or nurse?
You will be seen by experienced Lewisham GPs and nurses, but it is unlikely that you will be seen by your own GP or nurse. If you would prefer to see your usual GP or practice nurse, please book an appointment with your usual practice during their normal opening hours.
