Welcome to Woodlands Health Centre

The practice is dedicated to providing health care to patients in the Hither Green area. We are located on the old Hither Green Hospital site, which was opened in March 1871, and closed in September 1997.    The surgery moved from smaller premises in Lewisham to this site in February 2005 with 2,600 patients. The practice now provides services to over 8000 patients and continues to grow steadily.

Out of Hours & Emergencies

Woodlands Health Centre works with the South East London Doctors Cooperative (SELDOC) to provide urgent medical care when the surgery is closed. Please ring SELDOC on 020 8693 9066.

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) is helping to improve our services. Visit the Patient Participation Group page to learn more about what we’ve been doing and how to join us!

Why not use our new “Automated Arrivals Self Check-In”? The touch screen self check in is a simple and quick way of letting us know you’ve arrived for your appointment without waiting to see a receptionist. Our receptionists are on hand if you need help in using the service.
