New number for Greenwich and Bexley integrated community teams

Central Access Team

Our Greenwich and Bexley integrated community teams are moving from Memorial Hospital to 151 Lodge Hill, Goldie Leigh on 5 January 2015.

The teams provide healthcare at home for people with long term conditions and complex health and social care needs. 

Referrals to these teams come from patients, social services, GPs, hospitals and other healthcare professionals. Greenwich referrals are currently received by the Single Point of Access (SPA) and Bexley referrals by the Central Booking Desk (CBD). 

From 5 January 2015 the Single Point of Access (Greenwich) and the Central Booking Desk (Bexley) teams will be coming together and will become the Central Access Team

The new telephone number for patients and services users will be: 

020 8836 8622
