As part of improving patient access , the practice continues to offer:
- Access to our practice via telephone/online and our reception is also open;
- Face to face appointments based upon your assessment of clinical need following a discussion between the clinician and the patient
- On-line access for a proportion of our appointments;
- E-consultation (or equivalent) platform, during core hours Monday-Friday 08:00-18:30, and;
- Information about our services via our practice website.
Due to the likelihood of a surge in infections from variant B.1.617- (London already has the highest number of cases) the practice will offer a face to face consultation only after a clinical assessment through discussion.
For chronic diseases and related health problems, the "management " includes-
- offering consultation and, where appropriate, physical examination for the purposes of identifying the need, if any, for treatment or further investigation; and
- making available such treatment or further investigation as is necessary and appropriate, including the referral of the patient for other services under the Act and liaison with other health care professionals involved in the patient’s treatment and care.
For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.

The isolation note service can be accessed via https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/ or https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/, as well as via the NHS app.

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
