7 days a week GP access 8am-8pm

We have worked with other local practices within our GP Federation (Quay Health Solutions CIC), to provide GP access 7 days a week at a central hub location in North Southwark. This is not a walk-in service. An appointment can be booked at this service by a clinician at our practice if it is right for you. For some patients, for instance those with more complex needs, it is more suitable to be seen here at Old Kent Road Surgery. You would also need to agree to share your medical records with the hub on arrival. Ask at reception for more information.
