We would like to invite you to vote for your patient advocate of the year in the 2017 Hurley Awards. Vote here! Voting will close at 5pm on Sunday 19th November and the winner will be announced on December 7th 2017.



We are pleased to announce that the Hurley Group have co-located the New Cross Health Centre, our other Lewisham practice, into suite 3 at the Waldron.   The original reason for doing this was that the New Cross Health Centre lease was coming to an end and therefore an alternative location had to be found.

We consulted our patients at New Cross Health Centre and they wanted to stay with the Hurley Group and they also wanted to move to a local site.   During the consultation period it became clear that there were other benefits associated with this change such as:

•             Staff will work across all of the Suite 3 services, and

•             It enables the Hurley Group to provide a wider range of services to a larger group of patients from one location

The practice moved in on the 2 October 2017 so everyone is settling in.  It may appear that the waiting room is frequently busy, but it now services both practices and the walk-in centre.  We have made adjustments to the practice appointment systems in order to minimise any additional congestion.

If you have any comments or suggestions we would love to hear from you. Email:  LEWCCG.Hurleywaldron@nhs.net
