Campus Medical Centre - Appointment System
If you need to see a doctor or nurse you should telephone 0208 331 9680 to book an appointment. Please let us know if you need to see the doctor for more than 10 minutes or if you cannot keep an appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late you may be asked to rebook your appointment.
Same Day Appointment
In order to improve your access to see a clinician, these surgeries have adopted the “same day appointment” system.
The principle behind the scheme is that you contact he surgery in the morning and will be able to see a doctor or nurse that day. However you can still pre-book but fewer future appointments are now pre-bookable.
An advantage is less waiting time for patients and a reduction in the number of patients who fail to turn up for appointments, which in turn means more efficient use of the doctor’s time.
We do not operate a walk in service.
If you have a genuine problem, you should telephone the Centre and inform the receptionist that your problem is urgent. A doctor or nurse will try to see you the same day. If there is an emergency outside surgery hours, please telephone the centre and follow instructions on the answer machine.
All students are welcome to attend our main surgery at Elmstead Medical Clinic – 81 William Barefoot Drive, Eltham SE9 3JD when the campus is closed, during vacation or for evening appointments. (314 bus route) or 162 bus from outside campus, then short walk along William Barefoot Drive. Tel 0208 8571900
We do see temporary patients for a genuine emergency. As you can appreciate we do not have access to your medical notes and therefore do not know any past medical history. Examples of a genuine emergency would be emergency contraception, bleeding chest pain, wheezing or shortness of breath. Repeat medication or request for a medical certificate or letter is not an emergency and should be obtained from your own doctor.
