Our Services

Our four member practices care for a population of approximately 50,747 patients.

Services include:

​Social Prescribing Link Workers & Care Navigators

Our Social Prescribing Team will support you holistically by connecting you to non-medical support in and around the community. Social prescribing helps those with a wide range of social, emotional or practical needs, and often focuses on improving mental health and physical wellbeing.

Patients who could benefit from social prescribing schemes include; people with mild or long-term mental health conditions, people with complex needs, people who are socially isolated, and those with multiple long-term conditions who frequently attend either primary or secondary health care.

First Contact Physiotherapy

We have a primary care based Physiotherapy service which allows patients, who are contacting their GP surgeries with musculoskeletal pain to be seen quickly by a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist. The physiotherapists’ will assess, diagnose and provide information on appropriate individualised rehabilitation and management plans. They will work closely with our clinicians to ensure patient’s get the best level of care and assist with any medication, investigations and referrals when deemed necessary.

This service is provided by Pure Physiotherapy and is supported by our local GP Federation One Health Lewisham.

You can book an appointment directly with a physiotherapist by speaking to the reception team at your GP practice or by downloading the ASK NHS APP.

Health and Wellbeing Coach

We have recently employed a Health and Wellbeing Coach who works across all four of our member GP practices. Health and Wellbeing coaches use a variety of health coaching techniques to engage patients and support them by playing an active role in their health. They are able to support patients with a series of coaching sessions focusing on a variety of issues including:

  • Support to live a healthy independent life
  • Achieving a healthy weight
  • Support for patients with Type 2 Diabetes
  • Improving low mood/ mental health support (low-level)

​Extended Hours

​GP practices are working together to offer patients better access to GP appointments and to provide additional appointments outside of their normal opening hours. These are known as Extended Hours appointments and are available during Monday to Friday; early morning or late evening. Please contact your local GP practice or visit your practice website for further information. 

There are now a range of ways you can get advice from a GP or practice nurse, including online consultations, telephone consultations and via the NHS App. To find out more or to book an appointment, speak to your GP practice receptionist or a member of the practice team. If you have access to the internet please visit the practice website. 

Care Home and Residential

We provide care and support to Peartree care home, as well as several smaller learning disability and mental health homes. We are also working with a new One Health Lewisham hosted Care Home Team to enhance the current provision.
