Practice Update - February 2022

The safety of our patients is of paramount importance to us.

Throughout the pandemic we have worked tirelessly to look after our patients in the best way possible. We have been consulting patients in a variety of ways, including virtually, on the telephone and face to face when an examination has been needed. We have continued to run child and adult vaccination programmes, cervical screening, long term conditions health checks, mental health support and provide end of life care when needed.

We have been seeing COVID positive patients face to face if necessary. We have also been monitoring patients with COVID remotely to reduce the need for hospital attendances and ease pressure on secondary care.

We have been looking after the residents of two local nursing homes. 

We have just over 9000 patients of different ages, ethnicity and levels of vulnerability. We strive to deliver an efficient service and have diversified our practice team to include a phlebotomist, an advanced nurse practitioner to help with triage, two in house pharmacists who are able to prescribe medications and deal with any medication problems, a mental health nurse, access into a practice based mental health team and access to social prescribers. We hope to have a physiotherapist on site within the next few months. 

Please do not call your GP surgery about vaccines or boosters. We will contact you. You can find more information about where to get your vaccine and booster at www.northcentrallondonccg.nhs.uk/my-health/covid-19/walk-in-vaccination-clinics, or you can call 119.

If you would like advice on minor illnesses, you can visit your local pharmacy which can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines, or go online to seek NHS advice at www.nhs.uk.
