Urgent Care Update

The NHS in London is very busy due to rising coronavirus infection rates, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.

GPs are providing more appointments, including evenings and weekends, for patients with urgent health needs. Contact your practice, to arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care.

You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice – including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.

Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.

 

Covid-19 vaccines

If you are aged 70 and over or are clinically extremely vulnerable (high risk) and have not been contacted about having your first vaccine, please contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine. 

If you are a frontline health or social care worker, please book on the national booking system or contact your manager and use the staff booking system applicable in your organisation.

If you are aged 56-69 please book onto the national booking system for a list of vaccination sites or wait to get a letter from the NHS or be contacted by your GP.

REGISTER NEWBORNS

Parents of newborns, you can now register your baby with your GP without registering the Baby’s birth with the Registrar.

It is important to register newborn babies with a GP as soon as possible, so they don’t miss out on vital health services such as the 6-8-week check and immunisation programme.

You do not currently need a birth certificate to register your baby with the GP Practice

Voices of disabled residents and Covid-19

Disabled residents have faced more difficulties during Covid. Healthwatch and local health providers want to find out what can be done to make things better.
If you have a health condition that impacts your daily life, we want you to help shape healthcare services locally by completing our questionnaire.
If you leave your details you will be entered into a draw to win Amazon vouchers.

Teaching, training and research

We teach medical students from Barts and London, University College and Guy’s, Kings and St Thomas’s Medical Schools across the 3 surgeries. We also take part in clinical research projects. Examples of the studies we are involved in include Hepfree (early identification of hepatitis), CANDID study (cancer diagnosis tool study), and studies that look for genetics of chronic diseases including diabetes.

Please ask at reception of any one of our surgeries if you would like to take part in our clinical research projects.
