When We Are Closed

NHS 111

If you need a doctor URGENTLY when the surgery is closed, you should either ring the usual surgery number of 020 8680 2588 and listen to the recorded message, or ring 111.

Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Pharmacists

At Parkside we have always supported our Pharmacy colleagues who are experts in medicines, how they work and what conditions they treat. We are delighted to inform our patients about the Pharmacy Minor Ailments Scheme which offers Croydon residents access to medicines, health advice and treatment from their local pharmacy without requiring any prescriptions or vouchers.

To take part in the scheme, simply go to your local Pharmacy and ask the Pharmacist for medication under the Minor Ailments Scheme.

Pharmacists are able to provide you with medicines for minor conditions free of charge if you are normally exempt from prescription charges. If you are not exempt from prescription charges, you will pay the normal over-the counter charge to the pharmacy. Minor Ailments covered include:

Diarrhoea Mouth Ulcers
Hay Fever Sprains
Headlice Sore throat
Indigestion/heartburn Teething
Insect bites and stings    Vaginal Thrush

Of course, the pharmacist can also refer you back to your GP if more treatment or investigation is required.
