Your health over the Bank Holiday

Residents in Southwark are reminded that GP appointments are available on Bank Holiday Monday (May 29), 8am to 8pm, through our extended primary care service.

This service aims to make it easier for patients to access a GP or practice nurse at a time which suits them. It's delivered by our GP practices who work together to provide extra appointments in the daytime, evening and weekends from locations in the north and south of the borough

So if you need healthcare and your surgery is closed, you should contact the GP out-of-hours service (SELDOC) on 020 8693 9066 and they can refer you to the service, if it's right for you. 

Most GP practices in Southwark will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday, but the extended primary care service will be open throughout and can see patients needing urgent appointments who have been referred by the GP out-of-hours service (SELDOC).

Please be aware that the extended primary care service is not a walk-in service - an appointment must be booked for you in advance, so you do need to contact the GP out-of-hours service (SELDOC) first. 

If you have regular prescribed medicine, make sure you have enough supplies to last over the Bank Holiday. Talk to your doctor or nurse practitioner beforehand if you need more to see you through.

When your surgery is closed, your local pharmacist, a qualified health professional, may be able to help with common, non-urgent conditions. You won't need an appointment but check opening hours below.  For general advice, you can contact NHS 111 and in serious or life-threatening emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
