Covid-19 Testing 

If you have a high temperature, a new continuous cough, a runny nose, continuous sneezing or have loss of taste or smell, please do not attend the surgery and book a PCR Covid-19 Test. A Lateral flow test is not adequate if you are symptomatic. If you are unsure as to how to do this please visit NHS website or call 119 to arrange a test. Please note Gps are not able to book these tests.

Connecting Your Care: Improving how we use your information

We are working with the South West London Health and Care Partnership bring together health and care services in south west London to improve the way information about you is shared. This means it is quickly and safely available to the health and care professionals who need to see it, to make better and quicker decisions about your care and treatment.

Health and care professionals will have access to a real-time electronic, read-only version of your important health or care information, which can be critical when assisting you in an emergency.

Some services in south west London, such as hospitals and GP practices, have been sharing information in this way since 2019. From September 2020, even more organisations across south west London will be permanently adopting this way of sharing information.

Flu Vaccination update:

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Patient information on Covid-19 Antibody Test:

What is an antibody test?

An antibody test can tell you whether you have had the virus that causes Covid-19 in the past, by analysing a blood sample. Antibody tests are being used to help us understand how many people in the population have already had the virus.

 If I test positive for antibodies, can I ignore lockdown restrictions?

 No. There is no evidence yet to suggest that people who have had the virus are immune. We also don’t know whether having antibodies means you can’t transmit the virus to others. This is the position of the World Health Organisation. Covid-19 is a new disease, and our understanding of the body’s immune response to it is limited. You should continue to follow social distancing advice and government guidelines regardless of the results of the test.

 How will I be informed of the result?

 Your GP will be informed of the result and you can find out the result in the same way you would usually get a test result from your practice. Many people have access to their medical record online and you may be able to see your result using the practice online system.

 How will my information be used?

The results from the testing program will provide information on the spread of COVID-19 across the country and in different regions.  The results will be anonymised when being used for this purpose, meaning that it will not be possible to identify you or that your result applies to you.

 Are there any risks to having the test?

There are some risks related to having a blood test, such as feeling dizzy and faint during and after the test. Risks can also include bruising at the venepuncture site. Serious complications such as an infection at the site where blood was taken and phlebitis (swelling of the vein) are possible but generally extremely unlikely. 

Dental Care from 8th June:



Advice for Parents during coronavirus:

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious, If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself. 

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. 

We hope your child is well. We know you want to keep them safe. We want to reassure you that you can and should contact your GP if you have concerns about your child being unwell despite the disruption being caused by the Covid 19 pandemic. Coronavirus is unlikely to make your child seriously unwell but other illnesses or underlying chronic problems can. You should not delay in contacting your GP if you have concerns about your child's health. Please trust your instincts and call your GP if you are worried. Please call 999 in any life threatening emergency. Together we can keep your children well.


Coronavirus Update:

  • Our Surgery lines are open from 8:00am - 6:30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • If you have any health concerns please call and speak to a Receptionist, who can advise you what services are currently available with our GPs and Practice Nurses.
  • Repeat Prescriptions are available by calling your designated Pharmacy or emailing:
  • Please call and speak to a receptionist at the Surgery if you have any concerns regarding Repeat Prescriptions.
  • Please do not come to the Surgery in person, unless asked to do so by one of our staff.
