Contacting the Surgery - During COVID19 we are asking patients wherever possible to use the E-consult service on our website for the assistance of a GP.  The E-consult is a service for patients wanting to contact a GP for medical or administrative assistance.  Use E-consult to avoid the queues.  

 

Our telephone lines are extremely busy at this time and all telephone calls to our reception will be initially triaged. Your patience is much appreciated at such a  difficult time.

 

Repeat prescription requests - please remember that we will not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. Please see "Repeat Prescriptions" tab for more information.

 

Training practice - we are an accredited Training Practice, this means that we sometimes have trainee doctors in surgery. The FY2's and Registrars have completed their 6 year medical training and are qualified doctors who are now experiencing life in a GP surgery. We also host Year 6 medical students from Imperial College, and they may sit in during a consultation with your GP. If you would prefer not to have a trainee present when you see your GP, please let Reception know when you book in. Please refer to our Training Practice page on the LHS of the home page. 

 

If you have any queries or comments about the surgery, please do not hesitate to contact Carole Coles-Ranson our Practice Manager.
