Croydon GP Hubs
Posted on 13 Apr 2017
From 1st April 2017 three ‘GP Hubs’ opened across the borough to treat both minor injuries and minor illnesses. The GP Hubs are equipped to care for both children and adults.
To find the best care for you:
The Hubs offer walk-in services and also booked urgent appointments with a GP. To book an appointment, people should call NHS 111 in advance for an assessment.
NHS 111 is staffed by highly-trained health advisors to direct people to the best medical care depending on their symptoms – including the GP Hubs where appropriate. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day and is free to call from landlines or mobiles.
Appointments at any of the new GP Hubs will be available to people living or working in Croydon if they are unable to get an appointment with their own GP.
The improved services are part of a new contract with NHS Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group and the Croydon Urgent Care Alliance – a coalition of hospital doctors, nurses and local GPs.
This means, that for the first time, emergency and urgent care services will be working together to provide more coordinated care and support right across the borough. It also means patients and GPs within the Hubs will benefit by having more services closer at hand.
GP Hubs are based at three locations – Central Croydon, Purley and Parkway (New Addington).
You can find travel information and contact details for your closest GP Hub below.
Please note there is no longer a walk in minor injuries service at Edridge Road Community Health Centre.
This has been replaced with the central GP Hub based at East Croydon Medical Centre at 59 Addiscombe Road, Croydon CR0 6SD (open from 8am-8pm 365 days a year). You are advised to call NHS 111 to get an appointment there.
