When We Are Closed
From 1 April 2017, people who live in and work in Croydon have access to a wide range of urgent care services including booked appointments with a GP available from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week across three new GP Hubs.
If you are Croydon resident and are unable to get an urgent appointment at your GP surgery you can call NHS 111 for an assessment of your problem. If you then need to see a GP, NHS 111 can book an appointment for you to be seen at one of the three new GP Hubs in Croydon which are open 8:00 am to 8:00pm 7 days a week 365 days a year. You can also be seen at a GP Hub without an appointment but may have to wait.
Our GP Hubs are based at three locations – Central Croydon, Purley and Parkway (New Addington). Find travel information and contact details for your closest GP Hub below.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
