Make an appointment

For clinical advice and guidance we operate a same day clinical triage system. To access this we ask that patients do the following:

Call us between the hours of 08:00 and 10:00 on 020 7703 3788

Please WAIT in the queue until we answer your call - we have lots of staff answering calls during these hours.

DO NOT hang up and redial - this will put you to the back of the queue

DO try and answer the questions staff are asking you, these being

  • Your date of birth
  • Your name
  • Your address
  • The reason for your call

We ask for a reason so that we can place you on the call list most appropriate for you and your problem. 

Alternatively please Contact us Online

Our triage system


In addition to our GPs and to ensure that our patients have equal access to core primary care services here at Camberwell Green Surgery we have a team of highly skilled clinicians.

Paramedic - their training allows them to quickly but thoroughly assess the condition of patients with acute conditions. The paramedic is also highly suited to making home visits to our patients.

Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) - these are nurses that have the training and the authority in patient diagnosis and are trusted to independantly assess, diagnose, manage and care for patients with complex clinical issues.

Clinical Pharmacist - they work to improve outcomes from medicines and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks.

Physicians Associate - work directly with patients diagnosing and treating common illnesses.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Practitioner - work directly with patients providing immediate access to specialist advice and urgent help using evidence-based interventions. 

In addition to the above we also have a daily 'Oncall clincian' who is responsible for dealing with requests for:

  • Sick certificates
  • Medication queries (not repeat medication requests)
  • E-consults
  • Home visits
  • Emergency calls - via 111 or LAS

For any same day query please try to call us as early as possible as our call back list may close earlier than 10:00 should the practice reach capacity for the day.

Did you know.....?

  • that you can use the e-consult to request a sick certificate, also known as fitness to work certifcate?
  • that you can pop in to your local pharmacist for advice on your medication?

Children under the age of 16 attending for an appointment without a parent or guardian will be assessed for Gillick competence and/or Fraser guidelines before

Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. If you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling 020 7703 3788 before 10:00.

We would request that, apart from the genuinely housebound, all other patients contact the surgery in the usual way rather than request a home visit. Your request will be reviewed and assessed by the oncall clinician who will decide on if a visit is needed. 

Your doctor may refer you for a home visit by a community nurse or may refer you to another Community Service for the care that you need.


IHL Enhanced Access Service

We are a member of a GP Federation called Improving Health Ltd and the aim is to give our patients equitable access to a wide ranger of services. Once you have consulted with a clinician you may be offered an appointment at the Tessa Jowell Health Centre in SE22, more information about the centre can be found by clicking on the link below
