Anyone registered with a GP practice in Lewisham.
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-of-hours 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.
For further information or how to book an appointment online please visit the One Lewisham website or ask at your GP practice.
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.
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.
Your medical record will, with your consent, be available to the GP that sees you, to ensure that they have the information they need to give you the best possible care. Notes of your appointment will be sent back to your own GP practice electronically to ensure that your record is up-to-date. An appointment with this service will be just like an appointment at your own GP practice.
Further information about how we use your medical record is available at the One Health Lewisham website
