111 can offer advice, see you if necessary or arrange an appointment over the weekend at Southwark’s Extended Primary Care Service (EPCS) based at the Lister Centre in Peckham.

The nearest A&E to the surgery is Kings College Hospital. You are advised to use this service for medical emergencies, as you will be asked to wait a long time to be seen if your problem is just for routine care.
