Overview

Following a £11.15m refurbishment, which preserved many of the historic building’s original features, Purley War Memorial Hospital reopened in 2013.

It is now the Trust’s satellite hospital in the south of Croydon - a 21st century outpatient facility offering a modern, welcoming environment. It does not have any in-patient beds.

The blood test (phlebotomy) service can be used by anyone who has been sent by their GP or other medical professional for a test. No appointment is needed to use this service - simply turn up and wait. A ticket system is used

The service is busy early in the day, so unless you have been told that you must have your blood taken at a certain time, you may find that waiting
times are shorter in the afternoon.

Monday – Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) 7am - 12pm and 1pm - 4.45pm (closed at lunchtimes)

For more on this service see information about our phlebotomy (blood test) service

Purley Hospital’s X-Ray, DEXA (bone density) and ultrasound (diagnostic services)can be used by anyone who has been sent by their GP or other medical professional - you need a referral to use these services. The hospital offers digital X-Ray, DEXA (bone density) and ultrasound scans and can be used as an alternative to travelling to Croydon University Hospital. You will be given an appointment by your healthcare professional to use these services.

For more on this service see information about our diagnostic imaging service

If you are referred to one of our Outpatient clinics by a GP or other medical professional and you would like to come to Purley War Memorial Hospital (instead of Croydon University Hospital), please discuss this with your GP or consultant we will try to accommodate where possible.

Also on site is the Purley GP Hub offering unscheduled care patients from 8am to 8pm, 365 days of the year, staffed by GP's and Nurse Practitioners. Appointmments may be available to book ahead by calling 111 before you attend.
