Opening Times

Our reception is normally open:

Monday to Friday - 08:00-19.00

Extended Hours

We now offer some additional booked appointments with a GP, nurse or the Physician's Associate early in the morning from 07.30 (Tuesday or Thursday) and later in the evening until 19.30 (Monday or Wednesday). These appointments are generally aimed at accommodating those patients who are working and find it difficult to get to the surgery at other times. If you have an appointment with a clinician during extended hours when the building is not normally fully open you will need to buzz the intercom for entrance at the front door.

Outside these hours contact the normal surgery telephone number 020 8669 7612 and follow the recorded instructions.

Changes to the GP Contract require all practices to offer and promote the facility for patients to view on-line, export or print any summary information from their records relating to medications, immunisations, test results, allergies and adverse reactions.

General Practice Pressures & Missed Appointments

Day in day out in doctors’ surgeries across London, GPs want to be able to spend more time with their patients and less time on red tape.  It’s a fact that 9 out of 10 NHS patients are treated by GPs, not hospitals and not A&E.  Despite the anti-GP political rhetoric and some media coverage, the reality occurring in busy GP surgeries day in day out is one of doctors, nurses and other practice staff doing their very best in difficult circumstances, despite workloads doubling in recent years and with no additional funding to accompany it.  Across the UK, 1 million people will see a GP today. General practice cares about the whole person, not just their symptoms and will continue doing this for the young, older, vulnerable and chronically ill patients across the capital.

Please assist us by cancelling your appointments if they are no longer required.  On average we have 100 missed clinical appointments every month which could have been offered to other patients to reduce delays and avoid wasting valuable clinical time.  You can cancel appointments online if registered (if you are not registered for the online service please ask at reception), by phone or by text if you have had a text reminder.  Please follow the text instructions carefully.  If we have your up-to-date mobile telephone number you should always receive a reminder of your appointment 24 hours before with a function to cancel should you need to.


Named Accountable GP for all Patients

As of 1st April practices are required to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients including children.  At our practice we do this by way of a 'usual doctor' which is allocated on registration. If you are unclear who your named accountable GP is you can ask for this information when you call in or telephone. If you feel you would like a different GP to be allocated to you then this again can be requested and we will do our best to accommodate that. You are still free to see any GP and in particular when a different GP may have a sooner or more convenient appointment for your needs. You may also be required to see or speak to alternative GPs particularly in urgent situations or if a home visit is required. 


Drug Driving Rules

There are new drug driving rules in England and Wales from 2nd March 2015. Please see this leaflet for more information.


School Absences

If your child is absent from school and the school is asking you to get a doctors note for the absence please see this letter which we would be grateful if you could please share with the school. This letter is also available in hard copy from reception.



Self Care and Appropriate Treatment

There are lots of opportunities for you to care appropriately for yourself without the need to see a doctor. Please see the link to this document (Getting The Right Treatment in Sutton) to help guide you to the most appropriate treatment options in your area. Also please see other links on our self care page about how to treat yourself without the use of antibiotics and what services are available from your community pharmacist.



Changes to the GP Contract require all practices to offer and promote the facility for patients to view on-line, export or print any summary information from their records relating to medications, immunisations, test results, allergies and adverse reactions.

This is an extension to the online service we have provided to date which allows patients to make appointments, cancel appointments and order repeat medications. Please see this link to register or to log-in if you are a current user of 'online access' or go to this page on our website which provides you with further information. Even if you are a current user in order to use the advanced online items you will have to register for this so please ensure you read the information provided carefully.

Please note that the online repeat prescription service is for straightforward repeat prescription requests only. We are unable to deal with changes to items, dosage or quantities through this method. If you need to make a change or ask for a different medication please put this in writing or contact the prescribing clerk at the practice directly.  The prescribing clerk is available Mon-Fri 8.30-12.30pm. We do not take requests for standard repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please note that the online access service for making appointments is to make routine appointments with a GP only. You cannot make appointments online if the GP also needs to be supported by the nurse (ie coil fitting/changing) or for other specific procedures such as minor surgery or for any appointments managed by the nurses as this is depending on the right nurse with the right skills. Please always ring the surgery to check if you are unsure and make these more specific appointments with the right clinicians and at the right times.

For more information see our online services page


Who should I see?

If your need to see a GP or other health professional for something specific like a procedure or a medical you should always check with reception first to ensure the appointment is made with the right person(s) and for the right amount of time or you may be asked to re-book.
