I've just moved to the area - can anyone recommend a good GP nearby?

It might be helpful if you indicated which bit of SE1 you are in.

If you are in Waterloo you probably won't be interested in GPs in deepest Bermondsey and vice-versa.

There are also some previous threads you may wish to read:

Thanks!
I'm right by Waterloo station.
Have tried the NHS search, but it doesn't say if the doctors are male or female (i would prefer a female) and I didn't find any recommandations for GPs in my area in the previous threads...

Your nearest surgery is probably the Waterloo Health Centre on Lower Marsh, which I believe is generally well-thought-of, but constrained by very small premises for the growth in demand it has experienced in recent years.

We were always happy with the Lambeth Walk Group Practice.

I go to Blackfriars Medical Practice. They have both male and female doctors and very modern premises. It is in Colombo Street.

I'd second Blackfriars Medical Practice on Colombo Street. I've always been able to get an appointment quite speedily and my doctor - Dr Barnard - is female and very nice.

I use the Princess Street Practice (shortly to move - not quite sure where to). There are about 16 GPs who work there and you can always request a male/female.

I've always found them perfectly good but the downside of such a large practice is you never develop a relationship with a particular doctor if you only go once in a blue moon as they always seem to be coming and going.

Actually, thinking about it, not sure if they're accepting new patients - worth a call though - 020 7928 0253

I'd like to add a further vote for the Blackfriars Medical Practice. I registered with Waterloo Health Centre when I moved here and have had some less than satisfactory experiences with them. Blackfriars has been recommended to me by a number of people who are registered there - unfortunately they will not allow me to register as I already have a GP in the area.
