The existing telephone number for enquiries and appointmentswill remain unchanged.

We would encourage patients to order and collect repeat prescriptions earlier in the week.  If you need urgent advice or need to see a doctor on the afternoon we are closed please contact 020 3049 2370, to speak to a receptionist. Usual clinics will resume at the new location on Monday 2 October.

You will receive a letter from Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group in due course that will contain more information regarding the relocation.
