Bookable appointments at Coatham Surgery are available Monday to Friday. Our experienced GPs and Nurses consult with patients by telephone, videocall, and face-to-face (at the surgery and home visits). Routine care can also be accessed via eConsult, which is often more convenient for patients.
A Duty GP is also allocated to focus on more urgent care needs, including end-of-life care. The NHS 111 service also has an allocation of urgent GP appointments that they can book directly. For life-threatening emergencies phone 999.
Chronic Disease Clinics are nurse-led with input from the doctors as required. Nurse clinics cover a broad range of issues including Asthma, COPD, Hypertension, Diabetes, Contraception and HRT. Longer appointments are available when required, for example when discussing a new diagnosis in detail or when reviewing more than one condition.
You can let us know about your long term condition by completing an eConsult review.
