FLU CLINIC 24th SEPTEMBER IS TAKING PLACE
We are delighted to confirm that the Flu Clinic on 24th September will take place. Only attend if you have a booked appointment. This clinic is fully booked.
There are bookable appointments available for other dates, so please book via Patient Access, search Over 65 flu, or call the surgery between 4pm and 6pm to book.
Patients that already have booked appointments in later clinics, these are currently remaining as is but please check here on a regular basis as clinics may have to be cancelled at short notice due to the ongoing delivery issues.
Urgent Treatment Centres and Emergency Departments in Bromley:
Please note that Urgent Treatment Centres and Emergency Departments in Bromley are currently experiencing significant demand. If you have an urgent but non-life-threatening medical need, please use the NHS 111 website first https://111.nhs.uk/ rather than going straight to A&E.
NHS 111 can book you in to be seen safely in A&E, Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics. Contacting NHS 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way. However, you should still dial 999 if you have a life-threatening illness or injury.

Ongoing disruption to the supply of blood specimen bottles:
There is a global shortage of blood specimen bottles used in taking blood tests. Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one. But for routine blood tests and where a clinician recommends that it is safe to do so, you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date or your appointment may be rescheduled. We cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, you WILL get a test and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.
If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
The London Lane Clinic is an NHS general practice based in the north of Bromley in Kent. If you are a registered patient seeking clinical advice, please use the e-consult online consultation service (the blue box above), which may avoid a visit to the surgery.
For the duration of the coronavirus pandemic the surgery is open, but our usual appointments system has been changed to try to avoid the spread of coronavirus: if you think you need to see a doctor you need to complete a confidential on-line consultation. If a doctor then decides you need to be seen face-to-face, you will be invited in to the surgery. Alternatively, you may receive a telephone call or an e-mailed response.
Face-to-face appointments are also available.
If you are unable to access or use the internet, you may telephone the surgery instead on 0208 460 2661.
To register for online services, which currently allow you to request repeat prescriptions, send on-line messages to the surgery and view your records online, please ask for details from reception. However, it will not be possible to book appointments using this on-line service during the coronavirus pandemic.
On-line consultations and telephone consultations will take place during these times
Monday: 8.00am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 8.20pm
Tuesday: 8.00am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 6.30pm
Wednesday: 8.00am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 8.20pm
