Hi, I've just moved to SE1 and boxes are unpacked (pretty much) so it's time for me to find a good doctor surgery and dentist..... Can anyone suggest anywhere not too far (walking distance so when I'm ill as a dog I don't have far to go? :-) )

(Welcome. I've moved this thread over from the Socials section to the main SE1 discussion area where it belongs.)

SE1 is fairly big, so it helps if you give a rough idea whereabouts you are when you ask for recommendations within "walking distance".

You can find links to previous threads about dentists here:

As for GPs, your choice will be restricted by the catchment areas of the various surgeries.

A couple of recent threads about finding a local GP:

Excellent dentist at the bottom of Tower Bridge Road (Old Kent Road end) - 7407 7427 (they were taking on new NHS patients a couple of months ago).

I go to the Dr. on Grange Road and it is ok, but you can probably find somewhere nearer.

I also live on Bermondsey St and use the Bermondsey & Landsdowne Medical Mission on Decima Street. They have about 6 doctors in the practice and you can book an appointment anytime of the day over the phone using an automated service.
