Teaching

We are a training practice, with one of our core values being the education and development of the next generation of doctors. We see this as being extremely important and as such we run an active teaching programme for both undergraduate medical students and post graduate doctors pursuing higher training to become specialists in general practice. We are very grateful to our patients for their active participation in this education. You also have the option to opt out of seeing a trainee if you want to.

Medical students and nurses also occasionally visit for teaching puposes and may sit with a doctor or nurse to observe a surgery. Sometimes we may videotape surgeries for training purposes, but confidentiality is strictly observed and your permission is sought. If you do not wish to have an observer or be videod please let the receptionist or doctor know at the time.

Disabled Access

There are nine consulting rooms on ground floor and there is disabled access to a toilet at Guilderfield Road site, and a lift at Baldry Gardens site that provides access to teh first floor consulting rooms.

Help Us To Help You

Carers

Practice News and Notices

 

New Appointment System

As of Monday 29th September 2014 there will be a new appointment system introduced. This is following feedback and in consultation with our Patient Participation Group.

Every Monday to Friday we will have a triage doctor who will deal with all urgent appointments. 

If  you feel that you are unable to wait for a routine appointment please call 020 3049 5470 and arrange for the triage doctor to call you back.  The doctor will assess whether you need an appointment and agree whether to bring you in.

Patients who come to the surgery will not automatically be seen.  Nothing else will be available on the day.

Patient Notice

 

The practice is planning to temporarily close the Baldry Gardens site in the afternoons from

Monday 2nd June 2014. 

Our planned new opening hours are
Monday to Friday 08:00-13:00.
 
There are currently no GPs working from Baldry Gardens in the afternoons and up to now a Receptionist has been on site.  This planned temporary closure should not impact on patients as they are still able to make an appointment to see a doctor at Streatham Common, Guildersfield Road.
 
The practice is currently working with NHS England to find a solution to the problems relating to staffing both sites and will inform you of the outcome of these discussions as soon as it is possible.
 
Thank you for your continued support.
 
Elaine Richmond
Practice Manager

DUE TO THE NUMBER OF PATIENTS FAILING TO ATTEND FOR THEIR APPOINTMENT THIS MAY MEAN THAT YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THE DOCTOR ON THE DAY THAT YOU WISH TO.

IF YOU FAIL TO ATTEND APPOINTMENTS WITHOUT INFORMING US WE WILL WRITE TO YOU ASKING IF THERE ARE ANY SPECIFIC PROBLEMS PREVENTING YOU FROM LETTING US KNOW.
