Appointments with a GP

Regulated by Care Quality Commission

Important information: We have suspended all face-to-face appointments at our hubs in the wake of COVID-19. All appointments will now be by telephone triage with a GP. These can still be booked through your registered practice during normal core hours or by calling 01372 738 373 (Epsom hub) or 01372 232001 (Leatherhead hub) when your practice is closed.

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
• a high temperature or
• a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
• your condition gets worse
• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here. www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

Alternatively patients can opt to use LIVI.

LIVI lets patients see a GP by video in minutes – on their mobile or tablet. Because when you’re ill you want to see a doctor fast and from wherever you are.

  • GP appointments from home, work, or on the go
  • Get medical advice, referrals and prescriptions

The Extended Access Service has been developed to offer patients more accessibility to GPs outside normal working hours. Provided by GPHP, this service consists of a network of nineteen local General Practices in the Epsom area.

Who is it for?

We understand that some patients find it difficult to see a GP during normal practice hours because of work commitments or school. This service is therefore primarily aimed at these people. Suitable patients would be school children for non-urgent consultation and working professionals seeking routine appointments for blood pressure checks or contraceptive services as examples. This service is not intended for those patients with a chronic ongoing disease or problems which require continuity and review appointments. To use the hub, you need to be a fully registered patient at one of the practices listed below.

How can I make an appointment?

To book an appointment you can contact your registered GP practice in the usual way. Ask your GP’s receptionist for an appointment at one of our hubs. You can book an appointment in advance or on the day. If you are unwell when your doctor’s surgery is closed, you can phone 01372 738 373 (Epsom) or 01372 232001 (Leatherhead) from 18:30 to 21:00 on weekdays or from 09:00 to 13:00 on Saturday and 09:00 – 13:00 on Sunday to book an appointment. You will then be consulted by a local NHS GP with full access to your medical history. There is no charge for using this service.

PLEASE NOTE: For medical emergencies please contact 111. We offer a limited number of appointments and the service is very popular meaning there is limited capacity on the day. If you are unable to keep your appointment please call and let us know so that we can offer another patient this appointment time. Please also ensure we have an up to date phone number to reach you on.
