Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example in large print, braille or via email.
As part of the Accessible Information Standard we must:
- Identify patients who may have an additional communication need.
- Record the patient's need in our clinical GP system.
- Flag the patient's record to assure additional communication needs are obvious to practice staff;
- Share this information with other care givers such as social care;
- Act to ensure our staff can effectively communicate with patients who may have additional communication needs.
Please inform a member of staff in reception if you have any communication support needs- you can call us on 0207 249 5511 or tell a receptionist in person. You need to help us make sure we get things right for you.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients
From 1st April 2015, all practices are required to inform their patients including children of their named accountable GP, under the new GP contract for 2015/2016. The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to you.
If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.
This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
Please allow 48 hours for processing of your repeat prescription once you have dropped it off at the surgery. We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel your appointment.
Out of Hours
Please ring 111 if you have any Out of Hours emergencies. Telephone calls to the out of hours service are routinely tape-recorded as a safe-guard for patients and staff alike
