When We Are Closed
Whenever the surgery is closed, including bank holidays and weekends, a recorded message will give the phone number at which the duty doctor can be reached. Please do call at night if there is a genuine emergency, but if the problem can wait until the following day, this is preferable.
The practice participates in the South East London doctors Co-operative (SELDOC). The number for SELDOC is 020 8693 9066.
On the 3rd Thursday of each month the practice participates in CCG Sponsored Training and the phones are put over to SELDOC from 1230-1630, however the main doors are open.
This service is made up of local doctors and operates from 18:30 - 07:45 Monday to Friday and 18:30 Friday to 07:45 Mondays and all public & bank Holidays
The duty doctor will either:
- Advise you over the telephone
- Ask you to attend the Primary Care Centre, which is based at Dulwich Hospital, East Dulwich Grove, SE22
- Arrange for a doctor to visit at home for those too ill to travel.
