Phone Fault

We are experiencing intermittent phone problems this week. If you are struggling to get through to us please keep trying. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this causes and we are working with Open Reach engineers to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

Elm Lodge Surgery is open - please call or email if you need our help

The surgery is open and our doctors are continuing to provide medical assistance, please do call us (020 7274 6138) or email (SOUCCG.elmlodge@nhs.net) if you need our help. Appointments with a doctor start with a phone call to discuss your symptoms, a clear photo can often help this discussion if your condition is visible. Most issues can be resolved on the phone or with a video call, but if the doctor considers it necessary they will arrange for you to come into the surgery.

We are providing appointments with our practice nurses for immunisations, injections, dressings, smear tests and stitch removal.

So that we can keep our most vulnerable patients safe we ask that you do not come into the surgery unless you have a pre-booked appointment.

We aim to give you the best possible care, in a clean and safe environment and place great importance on reducing the risk of infection to patients and our staff.  

Please wear a face covering

Please wear a face covering if you are coming into the surgery. This applies to all our patients aged 11 and over unless you have a mask exemption.

Repeat prescriptions

We accept repeat prescription requests through the online app, by email, via your pharmacy or by dropping a written note into the surgery. Please do not call the surgery to request a repeat prescription.

World antimicrobial awareness week

World antimicrobial awareness week is from Wednesday 18th November to Tuesday 24th November. Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Elm Lodge Surgery recognizes the important role that general practice and our patients play in slowing resistance by reducing the unnecessary use of antibiotics.
