Extended Primary Care Service (EPCS) is moving to The Tessa Jowell Health Centre
The new Tessa Jowell Health Centre Tessa Jowell Health Centre is opening which will improve access to GP and community care for the residents of south Southwark and surrounding area by delivering a range of health and wellbeing services all under one roof. The EPCS will move to the Tessa Jowell’s building on Friday 22nd May.

What is the Extended Primary Care Service (EPCS)?
The Extended Primary Care Service (EPCS) provides patients in south Southwark with additional GP and nurse appointments. This means that there is primary care available from 8 – 8, seven days a week. On any given day, these appointments help a GP practice to manage their capacity and provide care for their patients even if their own appointments are fully booked.
The service is available to south Southwark patients who:
- require urgent same or next day urgent care in general practice and have been telephone assessed by a GP or trained senior nurse in their own practice
- can be managed by a GP or primary care nurse in the community (and do not need to go to hospital)
- routine appointments are also available and can be requested via your own GP surgery
Can I ask for an EPCS appointment?
If you are unable to get an immediate appointment at your GP practice, an EPCS appointment should be offered to you. If this is not offered please ask the receptionist.
