Telephone Appointments - New
As an alternative to a face to face consultation you may just want to speak to a Doctor for advice about a problem or may feel that you don't need to be seen face to face. This may also help if, perhaps you cannot get time off work (although please note we also offer appointments on Tuesday from 7 am and Saturday mornings). We also offer booked telephone consultations via Reception. The Doctor will phone you back at or around the agreed time on any number you provide. Please note that Telephone consultations are not suitable for problems where we may need to examine you. For example, skin rashes, chest or abdominal pain. If in doubt ask the Receptionist if a telephone appointment might suffice. It will usually be much quicker for you to access a telephone appointment.

Winter Pressures - Additional GP Appointments 2018
Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are funding additional GP appointments over the Winter months (and this may extend to Spring) at local GP 'Hubs' run by The Bromley GP Alliance. These appointments will usually be with local GPs who will have full access to your GP Records and can prescribe, advise and refer just as your normal GP who will also see the records from the Consultation. The appointments are in the afternoon/evening and at weekends too. They can only be booked via Reception at GSGMC. These appointments are intended as 'over-flow' slots when all the appointments at GSGMC have been used. They are not only for emergencies. The locations of the Hubs are:
Poverest Medical Centre, Orpington BR5 2DQ: http://www.poverestmedicalcentre.co.uk/
