Sidcup Medical Centre
Welcome to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.
We want to assure our patients that we are still open.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have made some changes to the way we book your appointments.
To help reduce the spread of Coronavirus all patients wishing to book appointments will be triaged.
The fastest way to do this is for you to complete an online consultation, which you can do via this website.
You can also do this on the NHS App which is available for free on iOS and Android devices.
If you need support to complete an online consultation, please call the Bexley eConsult Line on 020 8269 3406.
If you have dissented from SCR, or are unable to complete an eConsult for a patient under 5 please call 020 8302 1114.
The online consultation will be reviewed and then we will contact you with advice for next steps, which may include a telephone appointment with a clinician or possibly a face to face appointment.
Please note following Londonwide LMCs advice we will not be providing Medical Certificates or 'Fit Notes' regarding absence from the workplace related to Covid-19. If your employer requests a medical certificate please download this letter and give to your employer.
Collecting scripts from the surgery is being suspended.
If you have not already nominated a Pharmacy to collect your prescriptions from please see Dr Deshmukh's letter and complete an EPS Nomination form (Word , PDF) as soon as possible.
If you do not have a nominated Pharmacy you risk being left without medication should we be required to close the surgery doors.
Please see this leaflet for further information about EPS.
Possible Cervical Screening Scam
Public Health England have issued an alert that some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.
These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
