Appointments can be made online (using the AskFirst App or by using the NHS app from your mobile phone). Please remember that an appointment is for ONE person only. If you cannot keep an appointment please inform us as soon as possible so it can be used for another patient. If you want an online appointment (video call) then let us know and the doctor will provide a link to use on the day of the appointment.

Disabled Access

There is disabled access via the pathway and the front door. There is also a fully equipped toilet with wheelchair access.  Please also remember to ask the reception Team for an appointment downstairs as the practice does not have a lift. 


Toys and Children's Books

We are sorry to inform you that due to compliance with CQC (Care Quality Commission) guidelines and infection control we will no longer keep toys or children’s books in the waiting or consulting areas at our Surgery. We appreciate our young patients may need to be kept occupied and to prevent boredom we would encourage you to bring a small toy or book to occupy your child when they need to visit the Surgery.

For further information on CQC compliance guidelines please visit: www.cqc.org.uk


We are participating in an approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments. The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP, Pharmacist, First Contact Practitioner, Paramedic, Specialised MH Nurse or a Link Worker.  If your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you will be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice.

We think this is a good thing. Once you see how great your local pharmacist is – they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses – we don’t think you’ll look back. This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.

We are keen to hear what you think and will be listening to your comments and feedback about your experience of using this service.

Following a patient questionnaire, the results identified that patients wanted more GP appointments between 4-8pm Monday – Friday and on Saturdays between 9-5pm.

SELNASH PCN have listened to these requirements and have organised additional GP and Nurse Appointments based at Farley Road Practice, 53 Farley Road, Selsdon, CR2 7NG.


Zero Tolerance

We strongly support the NHS policy on zero tolerance. Anyone attending the surgery who abuses the GPs, staff or other patients be it verbally, physically or in any threatening manner whatsoever, will risk removal from the practice list. In extreme cases, we may summon the police to remove offenders from the practice premises. You can learn more here.
