Coatham Surgery will operate an Urgent Care Walk-in Service during the mornings for registered patients only. The service is intended to treat new or urgent medical conditions which require medical attention on the same day. It is not a replacement for self care or intended for routine care, complex/multiple medical issues or emergencies. It is also not suitable for your first appointment when you register with the practice. Coatham Surgery is also making improvements to telephone systems and routine services – it is now possible to pre-book a routine GP appointment up to 4 weeks in advance and GP telephone appointments are also available.
