We have review our appointment system in response to a recent patient survey.

We have:                   

¨   added more practice nurse appointments

¨   Changed access to 4 weeks in advance and 48hour in advance

¨   Introduced Patient access to appointments on-line

  It will take a while for the advantages of this process to show, please be patient with our Reception Team.

 All routine appointments with a doctor or nurse are for 10 minutes.  During the appointment it is usually possible for the doctor to deal with one main problem and perhaps one minor problem.  Any more than this and the  consultation could overrun. 

As we know all delays add up and cause inconvenience for patients waiting until the end of surgery.  If your problem is too difficult for 10 minutes you can ask for a double appointment when you book.  Some appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance if required, please ask the receptionist.

 

URGENT PROBLEMS – Telephone Triage(On-call Duty Doctor Service)

 

We have changed the way in which we deal with requests for ‘Urgent Consultations’ with the doctor or nurse.

  If you have a medical problem that you feel is ‘Urgent’ and cannot wait for the next routine appointment, please contact the Surgery by telephone between 8.00am - 11.00 am.  The Receptionist will take your contact details and if you could give a brief description of the ‘Urgent problems';  the Receptionist will then pass this to the doctor or nurse, who will call you back.

 

Using this system, for ‘Urgent problems' some patients problems can be dealt with over the telephone, whereas others may require an ‘Urgent Appointment’ and will be asked by the Doctor or Nurse to come in at a specified time.

 

We hope by using this system it will prevent long waiting times in our Waiting Room.

 

MEDICAL EMERGENCIES - DUTY DOCTOR SERVICE

 

There is a Duty Doctor on call in the Practice between 8.00am - 6.30pm who will attend to any Medical Emergency and consultations from Healthcare Professionals.

 

To make it easier for you to get the right help when you need it urgently we are offering a Duty Doctor Service in this practice. Duty Doctor is in place from 8.00am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.

When you phone with an urgent problem, the Duty Doctor will ring you back within 2 hours and will decide the best way to help you. The doctor may:

  • Give you advice straight away over the phone
  • Arrange for you to come into the practice to see a doctor or nurse or other member of staff
  • Arrange for a home visit if you are not well enough to come to the surgery and the doctor thinks you need to be seen
  • Direct you towards other services which can help

If you need urgent medical advice for you or someone you care for, please call the practice on our usual number and ask the reception team about speaking to the Duty Doctor. They will ask you a few questions and if they decide the duty doctor is the right person to help they will arrange for them to call you back WITHIN 2 HOURS.

This service offers you quick access to your GP practice, where they know you and have your full medical record. We recommend this service instead of going to A&E.

 

 Cancel Appointment
If you made an appointment to see any member of the healthcare team and you no longer require it, please telephone us as soon as possible on 020 7690 1151.  Even one hour ahead of time will free that appointment for another patient who may be able to fill it.

Missed Appointments
Please come at least five minutes early.  If you do not come on time you will miss your appointment time which will be given away to someone else.
