Due to the Coronavirus situation we are having to change the way in which we provide our care. We have been advised to limit attendances at the surgery to an absolute minimum. We have reduced online booking of appointments and we are now undertaking routine consultations via telephone and will be offering telephone triage appointments for urgent on the day problems.
Due to the high volume of demand please try to use alternative resources where possible. we would recommend the reliable information provided through the NHS Website www.nhs.uk. We would also recommend using your local pharmacy where possible for treating minor conditions.

Welcome To The Practice
The partnership was formed in 1884 and has seen and undergone many changes over the years. In 2004 the surgery name was changed in order to bring it up to date, but we continue with our ethos of a strong belief in the traditional family doctor relationship that we combine with the efficiency and wide range of services we are able to offer in a modern practice. The premises have been extended on three occasions, most recently in 2007 when we joined the main building by a walkway to the building next door. At the moment with the ever increasing population within the surrounding area, East Croydon Medical Centre is at the forefront of medical care within a busy and ever changing part of Croydon. With that the population is vastly growing and in order to be able to serve the community efficiently the East Croydon Medical Centre will be going through a number of developments which will be duly communicated to our patients.
This website is provided to inform both those who are considering joining the practice list and those already registered with us. Our team offers a full range of general medical services. Details of the practice team members and what they do can be found here.
We aim to treat all our patients efficiently, courteously and in complete confidence.
