Cold Hubs

This clinic is for patients who need a clinical examination for an acute or chronic problem. You are able to refer patients to both face to face and remote telephone consultation appointments as part of the GP Extended access service.

The face to face appointments OHL GPEA Face to Face Cold Hub slots require practice clinicians to review patients remotely first to ensure they fit the cold hub criteria and have no COVID symptoms/ must not be self isolating for any reason. The GP Extended Access Service is located on the ground floor of the main entrance building, in the yellow zone at University Hospital Lewisham, Lewisham High Street, London, SE13 6LH.

The telephone appointments OHL GPEA Telephone consultation slots do not require any clinical triage in advance and there is no referral template to complete for these appointments. As these are telephone consultations both COVID and non-COVID related symptoms can be referred. Please ensure patients are aware this is a remote telephone consultation when booking

(Note: Due to Covid GPEA and The Cold Hub are operating as the same entity)
