You can ring NHS 111 for medical advice and support, and don't forget that you can also go to your local pharmacy for non-urgent health advice.
Please only call 999 if you believe there is a life-threatening emergency.
At other times, if you are a Croydon resident and you can't get an urgent appointment at your GP surgery, or when the surgery is closed and you have a non-emergency situation, please ring or go online to NHS 111 for an assessment so you can be directed to the best service to meet your health needs. If you need to see a GP you will be given an appointment at a local GP Hub - there are currently 4 in the Croydon area - which are open 8.00am to 8.00pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The newest hub, at Croydon University Hospital, is open 8.00am to 10.00pm. You CANNOT be seen at a GP Hub without an appointment so please do not attend unless you have been told to by NHS 111 or an appointment has been booked for you by us.
There is also a self-help/self-care app which is free to download, Health Help Now, information on this and other self-management can be found at www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net
